Photographer’s Q&A – Claus Andersen

Based in London, Ontario, photographer Claus Andersen is one of the few Canadian photographers who shoots sports almost exclusively. He’s been covering both pro sports and international sporting events for almost 40 years: NHL, NBA, CFL, PGA, LPGA, Olympics, World Track and Field Championships, Commonwealth Games, Pan-Am Games, harness racing, London Knights team photographer and more.

His interest in sports, especially track and field, may have started when he competed as a runner in high school track competitions. But his interest in photography started much earlier.

Of the many islands that make up the craggy archipelago, only one is inhabited – Heimaey, or home island. Most Icelanders simply refer to this place as Eyjar, the island. Continue reading »




Built On Their Backs by Andre Malerba

In the Hlawga township of Yangon, Myanmar, hundreds of workers toil to make bricks from the very ground on which they live. Backhoes and men dig up clay that is fashioned into sun-dried bricks, which are then stacked into 20-foot high kilns and baked for several days. The entire process takes two or three weeks. Most of the workers are migrants, either having been kicked off their land in Myanmar by the government or are the victims of disappearing, traditional ways of life. Continue reading »
