Biography: About Finn Byrum - freelance photographer. For the last 25 years I have been working with photography. I visited more than 42 countries around the world - on different photo-assignments - and had the opportunity to meet a lot of beautiful people. I work on photo-assignments and projects - for national and international humanitarian and development organizations. Life and the world rushes by. So to me it makes sense to stop for a second and freeze the moment with my camera - a kind of digital meditation - providing time and substance for reflection.
