Born and raised in Alaska, I gained an appreciation for the natural world early on. I spent my childhood living in the woods, observing insects, wildlife and learning to differentiate different types of plants. Attending boarding school in India sparked an urge to pick up a camera and document the world, and I have traveled with a camera ever since.
I have made it my mission to generate positive social and environmental change in our world today through visual storytelling. Social issues are often intertwined with how we interact with our environment, and I stand by the philosophy that storytelling can be a transformative experience, leading us to live a more conscious and fulfilled existence.
Dev Dharm has documented nature, wildlife, and culture in Alaska and abroad. His current work explores the concept of wilderness, and how our experiences in wild places shape identity (coming soon).
