Mario Gerth is a photographer’s photographer – one who is esteemed by his peers for having the freedom and drive to travel to more than 66 countries across 5 continents in pursuit of his passion. He’s been a witness of civil war, poverty, dictatorship and violence – but more often he was a guest in a world that is characterised by graceful beauty.
His images are a tribute to Africa and the African people. They document, inform them, they question. Gerth’s photography has been shown in international exhibitions and published in numerous magazines to much fanfare. Time Magazine aptly named him a world changer.
