I’m Adri Berger.
I am based in Laos, work around the region, and the rest of the world when it opens up again!
When everything has been said, what to add but maybe a quote by one of my favourite photographers:
“A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.” – Edward Steichen
Adri’s work has been exhibited in a variety of solo and group shows at institutions including: Thomas Kettle Gallery (London), National Portrait Gallery (London), the Association of Photographers Gallery (London) and Naarden Fotofestival, Netherlands. In the Neilsson Hays Library and the Dutch Embassy, both in Bangkok, the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York and in other shows. Prints of his work are being held in the collection of the Arts Council in the UK.
He directed and produced a 50 min documentary about Heritage in Luang Prabang, a Unesco World Heritage site. The film was supported by a grant from the US Embassy in Vientiane, Laos, and was shown during the Luang Prabang Film Festival. He also lensed a documentary about the dire situation of Elephants in Laos, once known as the Land of a Million Elephants. The documentary was made for KBS (Korea Broadcasting Systems) and was watched by over 3 million people. His recent projects for Save the Children in Laos have received praise from the International development community and the ‘Our Promise’ campaign has been successful in helping to address stunting in the Northern regions in the Lao PDR.
