Rhodri Jones was born in Gwynedd, Wales, and is presently based in Italy. Having travelled widely in Europe, South America and East Africa, he began working as a professional photographer in 1989 in Central America. He has since worked on projects around the globe and his work has been used by many leading newspapers, NGOs, magazines and publishers worldwide. Exhibitions featuring Rhodri Jones’ work have been held in several countries.
