Comments Comments

The third season of acclaimed photography series Tales by Light starts on 26 August, with the new season of the Canon Australia-produced show aiming to shine a light on the beauty and vulnerability of people, nature and Indigenous culture.

Produced by Abraham Joffe, season three follows photographers Simon Lister, Shawn Henrichs and Dylan River.

In the first episode, UNICEF’s global photographer Simon Lister goes to Dhaka, Bangladesh with UNICEF goodwill ambassador Orlando Bloom, capturing the lives of children residing in the railway slums. In episode two, conservationist Shawn Henrichs travels to Isla Majeuresin Mexico and Raja Ampat in Indonesia to share never-before-seen footage of human impact on marine life in our oceans.

Finally in episode three, Indigenous filmmaker and photographer Dylan River visits the Australian central desert in Alice Springs, Victoria River on the northern edge of the Tanami Desert and the remote Yolngu community in Bawaka Arnhem Land, communities and landscape rich with stories, culture and traditions spanning tens of thousands of years.

Jason McLean, Executive Producer and Director of Canon Australia’s consumer imaging division says that Tales by Light's focus on some of the world's best photographers continues in the new season.

“With this season we retain the focus on seeing through the eyes of some of the world’s best photographers, but this time the subject matter really focusses on the power of an image to connect people and give a voice to aspects of our world that don’t have one of their own."
