" I'm interested in documenting the full spectrum of the human experience:
the struggle and joy, the light and darkness." 

Greta Rybus is a full-time freelance photojournalist specializing in editorial portraiture, travel and documentary photography.
She is currently based in Portland, Maine where she lives with her sweetheart and her scruffy sidekick, a dog named Murray. 

Born in Boise, Idaho, Greta studied Photojournalism and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Montana. Her first book, Handcrafted Maine, about people in Maine working with art land, and sea, is now in bookstores. She has a goal to spend one month of every year living and photographing in a new place and is currently working on an ongoing project exploring how climate change impacts individuals and communities. Thus far, she has worked on the project in Senegal, Panama, and Norway. 
She has lived in Japan, the Netherlands, the San Juan Islands, Montana, Seattle, the Sawtooth Mountains, and Berlin, Germany.
