R. Cleveland Aaron shoots Portraits, Architecture, Products & occasionally fashion. He divides his time between commissions, tutoring and personal projects. His association with Olympus UK spans some 15 years, and recently he was given the titles ‘Olympus Ambassador and European Visionary’. His use of light and attention to detail epitomises his philosophy on Photography. “Every shot is a memory, I take pictures like it’s a matter of light & depth”.
ON BOARD THE SMILE TRAIN
Cleveland allocated 120 hours to visit 2 Indian cities and document a boy’s quest to collect images to exhibit and raise money for SMILE TRAIN a charity set up to help children born with cleft palates/lips.
His images document the fine work of the SMILE TRAIN organisation in a hospital in Delhi.
“I was only in India for five days. Although it wasn’t the first time I’d been there, it was the first time that I’d truly seen the country. I’d visited around 20 years previously, on that trip all I saw was an airport, hotel, office, and restaurant.”
“The exclusive one-off prints will be available for a suggested donation to Smile Train, while the images I took at the hospital will help document the work they do.”
