"With silent shutters, small bodies and stunning image quality, my Sony alpha cameras open a whole new way of shooting"

Photographer Justin Jin captures a changing world through stories of real lives. Born in Hong Kong in 1974, his childhood curiosity about the way the world works led him to embark on an independent career as a documentary photographer. Today, based in Brussels, Justin travels between Asia, Europe and Africa to shoot for the world’s leading media, NGOs and commercial brands. Speaking fluent Mandarin, Cantonese Chinese and English, and reasonable Russian and Dutch, Justin cuts through cultural barriers to the heart of diverse themes. International awards attest to Justin’s dedication as a photojournalist, including the Magnum Emergency Fund, Pictures of the Year International (POYi), World Press Photo Masterclass, and various prizes in China. His work has been exhibited internationally, including at the FOAM, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, and photo-journalism’s premier venue, the Visa Pour L’Image festival in France.
