richard lahuis

Photographer based in Hamburg, Germany. I’m specialised in analog black & white portraits. My style can be described as intimate and raw. In my portraits I use composition, location and background to tell a story about the subject.

I mainly work as an independent photographer. My main focus is creating projects about injustice – giving people a platform to present themselves in a personal and neutral way. These projects end up as (online) exhibitions.

latest work: valid values

An ongoing project about the political persecution of Julian Assange.

On Valid Values you can find portraits and personal values of people who are linked to WikiLeaks in various ways. Among them are human rights lawyers and activists, artists, journalists and ambassadors.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is charged by the US government with publishing war crimes committed by that same government. He could face 175 years in jail.
