My name is Leonie Pow, I was born in Tasmania, raised in The Netherlands and have lived all over the globe ever since. Right now I'm a happy resident of New Delhi, India.
After working in development aid and education I got the golden opportunity to grow my interest in photography into a profession. With a knack for discovering exciting places and connecting with strangers I am drawn to portrait and documentary photography.
Whether creating a visual story about a humanitarian project, doing a family shoot or commercial assignment, I aim at capturing slices of time that show the uniqueness of the subject, its history, impact and character.
I studied photography at the Fotovakschool in Rotterdam and am currently working towards a Fine Arts degree in photography at the Open College of Arts in Barnsley, UK.
I have recently worked for Keur Yakaar, Publisher Ambo/Anthos and The Netherlands Embassy of Dakar.
