When words fail to capture a moment, a picture tells a powerful story. Through the curious, adventure-seeking lenses of some of Keen’s travel photographers, we learn about distant cultures, traditions, thrills, beauty and exploration. Experiences are captured in an awe-inspiring still life, a moment frozen in time for us to cherish and share. These travel photographers have explored the world, and we are fortunate to have them share their memories and award-winning pictures on our blog.
Today, we highlight travel photographer Ingetje Tadros and her incredible work. She has traveled the globe, capturing the spirit and personality of distant cultures. Hear her story and enjoy her photos:
