“Finlay is a six-time winner of the Picture-of-the-Year International competition administered by the Missouri School of Journalism, and has received additional awards and honors from the IPA, Los Angeles Emmy Awards and Communication Arts. As his work is already highly recognized and regarded, this installment for Photographers in Focus depicts Finlay in a new light, revealing his deep desire to make a difference in the world.

“Participating in Photographers in Focus was a great opportunity for me to explain to the world the impact I hope my images have on people,” said Colin Finlay. “By trying to portray people suffering in a very real and poignant way, I want my photography to not only inspire sympathy from people who view it, but more importantly, action.””
