 SHANNON ECKSTEIN

Director / Story Editor / Camera / Sound / Photography

A professional freelance photographer and photojournalist for more than 25 years. This is Shannon’s first feature documentary film.

 

Perhaps best known for her award-winning images selected by M.I.L.K  in 2001 - two of Shannon’s images were selected out of

40,000 entries from 164 countries. These images headlined an international travelling exhibition, and were first

exhibited in Grand Central Station, NYC. Oprah recognized Shannon’s work on TV.

In 2003 she won a B&W Spider Award for her portrait of a 103-year old woman.

 

In 2005, Shannon was selected and published by the International Women’s Development Agency (IWDA) for her work in Punjab, India with NGO, Operation Rainbow Canada. She was nominated by International Photography Awards (IPA) for her series on an inner-city dance program in Scarborough, ON. Her work has also been featured in Popular Photography and American Photo Magazine.

In 2010, she was internationally recognized for her work in Bangladesh with the NGO, Friendship Hospital of Hope.

 

Hospice became her passion project in 2014 when she first started photographing and interviewing the residents and families of Bethell Hospice. Shannon completed a hardcover coffee table book of photographs on Bethell Hospice dedicated to Lorna Bethell and has donated many of these images to Bethell Hospice for use in their print and digital marketing.
