For Nerriza Ballee, photography runs in the family. Nerriza was born in Guyana, the daughter of not one, but two professional photographers. She grew up in the United States where she eventually pursued a career as a computer analyst. Although successful in her secular life, Nerriza eventually tired of the corporate world and well, walked away from it. And once she walked away, it seemed hard to stop walking.
Nerriza began traveling the world, a journey that, for her, has still not reached its end. Of course, she takes amazing photographs each step of the way. Her street shots from exotic locations like Thailand and Myanmar are absolutely stunning. We were equally impressed by her Auschwitz series, a collection of somber perhaps even haunting photographs.
Nerriza was kind enough to speak with us about her life, travels and passion for photography. Take a listen by clicking on the audio player below.
