Photographer and filmmaker Stephen Alvarez produces stories of global exploration, adventure, and culture. Since 1995, Alvarez has worked with National Geographic magazine to create a number of stories that call on his caving expertise and lighting capabilities, including the discovery of an Incan mummy in Peru, the exploration of the world’s deepest cave near the Black Sea, a jungle expedition through Central America’s longest cave, the whitewater world of New Britain’s caves, and an exploration of the world below Paris.
Stephen’s images have won numerous awards, from markets including Pictures of the Year International and Communications Arts, and his work has been shown at Visa pour L’Image in Perpignan, France.
