" 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, food, 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. Greta is currently working on a book project about Maine's tradition of working with art and the land. She has a goal to spend one month of every year living and photographing in a new place. She has spent a month in rural Hawaii and another month in Senegal, where she documented how climate change is impacting local people. This year, she spent a month living in Panama's Guna Yala region to continue her project about climate change as a human rights issue. She has lived in Japan, the Netherlands, the San Juan Islands, Montana, Seattle,
the Sawtooth Mountains, and Berlin, Germany.
