HEIDI SCHUMANN

A documentary photographer based in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands, I am available for commercial and editorial assignments anywhere.

Most recently I photographed the effects of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean.

Over my 20 year career I have photographed women and the Shia religion during the conflict in Iraq; victims of rape, orphans, refugees, and gold miners in the Democratic Republic of Congo; and the human effects of gun violence in Central and South America.

My editorial clients include the New York Times, Boston Globe, Village Voice, Fader magazine, GQ, Newsweek Poland, Reuters, Associated Press, and Stern magazine.
