Geoffrey Hiller: Heavenly World

Image Copyright © Geoffrey Hiller-All Rights Reserved

Geoffrey Hiller is one of the first advocates of multimedia on the web, and has worked as a photographer for over 30 years. He lived in Brazil for three years where he was a staff photographer for Manchette and Revista Geografica (Brazil’s National Geographic). He worked as a documentary photographer working on extensive photo essays in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

His work has been published in major international magazines and he has received grants from the California Arts Council and Eastman Kodak. Since 1995, Hiller has been passionate about telling stories with photography on the Web. Hiller has directed Creativesight for Tektronix/ Xerox, and has completed a number of independent projects. He has received three Macromedia Site of the Day mentions and has recently completed projects on Brazil and West Africa.

I feature Geoffrey's Heavenly World, a collection of his excellent images from all over Asia...however take the time to explore his website, especially Burma: Grace Under Pressure, a multimedia feature on Burma. It may be somewhat outdated by now, but Hiller is one of those who started the multimedia revolution. His coverage of Burma is still very relevant in light of the current events in this nation.
