From passion to commitment
Photography by Prince Hussain Aga Khan
The Sustainability Pavilion at Expo City Dubai.
Born in 1974, Prince Hussain Aga Khan developed a keen interest in conservation at a young age and began scuba diving at 14.
He started travelling to the tropics frequently after secondary school and began taking photographs of fauna and flora on a trip to the Brazilian Amazon in 1996.
Multiple photographic expeditions have led him to constitute extraordinary archives, covering various geographical areas and types of habitats as well as a large number of marine and terrestrial species.
Since 2004 books, exhibitions and illustrated talks by Prince Hussain have evolved into global platforms to raise awareness, as well as inspire and educate audiences on the necessity and urgency to protect and conserve the most threatened places and species on our planet.
Prince Hussain founded Focused on Nature (FON) in 2014, to fund organizations that have immediate impact projects in wildlife and ecosystem conservation and preservation.
He is a board member of Mission Blue, the Shark Conservation Fund, as well as the Jane Goodall Legacy Foundation’s Council for Hope. Prince Hussain is also an Ambassador for the Natural History Museum, London.
