has documented the most remote corners of the world for the past forty years. She photographs people engaged in daily life activities, and the world that surrounds them. Her photos invite the viewer on a trip which transcends geographical location, and penetrates the culture of the region.
As a writer, Mary Altier has artfully blended the genres of photography and the written word. Her well-researched stories evoke the same sense of place that she captures so naturally in her photographs. Her combination of words and pictures bring faraway images to life.
“Mary Altier is a professional in the very best sense of the term—superior craftsmanship, accuracy, thoroughness, and integrity.”
