Dubai-based portrait and documentary photographer Celia Peterson draws on her experience in visual story-telling to produce work for both editorial and advertising clients including Der Spiegel, Die Zeit, Financial Times Holland, Saatchi & Saatchi London, Landor, du, Emaar, Audi, JWT and HSBC.
Inspired by human behaviour with a passion for capturing everyday life, Celia can quickly connect to the culture and essence of a place or person. Celia often begins the process using a still’s camera but when the opportunity or stories present themselves, creates short films or documentaries alongside the photographic work.
Celia works for a variety of humanitarian agencies. Her most recent projects were in Gaza and on the Syrian border in Turkey. She takes on projects that stir her passions about the state of humanity. She uses her visuals to have a positive impact on this world by both raising funds and awareness of issues close to her heart.
