Stewart Halperin found his photographic roots in the jungles of Tanzania studying chimpanzees along with Jane Goodall. On his return to the USA the second and possibly most profound influence on his approach to shooting was his friendship and mentorship with photographic great Ernst Haas.
Halperin’s work has been exhibited and published in the USA, Europe and Asia. In 2012 one unique exhibition took place in Venice, Italy. Over 50 of his Venetian photographs were made into large, woven tapestries and hung in the gallery adjoining the Ducal Palace. That same year found Halperin’s photography featured in Nikon World Magazine. The past two decades has seen another transition for Halperin as he moves from assignment work to teaching workshops and leading photo expeditions worldwide. From the boroughs of New York to the steaming jungles of Cambodia and the beat of the street in Havana, Stewart Halperin nurtures new generations of photographers.
