    Testimonials Submitted by the photographer

    Jeff Darmanin, Diimex

    Ingetje is one of the most passionate and creative Photographers I've had the pleasure to work with during my 25years in the industry. Her ability to shoot very confronting subjects with diplomacy and care is testament to her talent and highlights the fact you need to do more than hold an expensive camera to be considered a true photojournalist. I am proud to work with her and represent her amazing work.

    Ming Yu HAH, Amnesty International Australia

    Ingetje Tadros worked as a freelance photographer with Amnesty International Australia for a 5 day assignment in the Kimberley during February 2015. She was part of Amnesty's project which documented in words and photos a wide range of individual stories in relation to the over-representation of Indigenous children in detention. Ingetje's photos will be used in this important global campaign and I was pleased to have the opportunity to work together with her. Thank you for your collaboration and efforts

    Gerry Georgatos, The Stringer

    Exceptional close up photojournalist who captures the essence of people need to convey. Her photojournalism is underwritten by her striving for a better world, for a humane one. Ingetje's photo essays are also advocacy journalism.
