In this episode of ISO 400, we hear from Elie Gardner and Oscar Durand, a married pair of photojournalists who have been working together for the past five years. They began their career together in Lima, Peru in 2011, and worked there for four years, covering all kinds of different stories, from a massive aerobics class in a dangerous prison to conservation efforts to protect the Amazonian manatee. They published their work through Inti Media, a multimedia collective they founded. Towards the end of their time in Peru, they founded Everyday Latin America, an Instagram community dedicate to showing daily life in Latin America.
Earlier this year, they began a new chapter by moving to Istanbul, Turkey, where they’ve had to get used to not knowing the language entirely, though they are working on it.
More of Elie’s work can be found on her website and on Instagram @eliegardner. For more of Oscar’s work, you can check out his website and his Instagram @oscardurand.
