An international award winning filmmaker relaxing after years of full on productions and a stint as a Professorial Fellow at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia. I’m now doing a PhD on creativity programs with young adults in Timor-Leste.

I’ve been teaching photography and digital storytelling with men in a maximum security prison and women who have recently been released from prison at Sacred Heart Mission. Now mainly living in Timor-Leste where I have been working with young artists at Arte Moris. I also work with unemployed youth at Centro Juventude Covalima in Suai. These projects are funded by humanitarian and aid organisations to promote skills and social engagement amongst communities of the disadvantaged.

Timor-Leste photography by Richard Jones, Meli Fernandes from Arte Moris and Luigi Acquisto with students Mario Soares Fierria and Higenia Fierria. For more of the students’ images from a remote township on the south west coast of Timor-Leste see: Hosi Laran ba Laran (From Heart to Heart).
