Aukram Burton has enjoyed a professional career as an award winning photographer, moviemaker and educator. He considers himself to be a media artist working with photography, film, video and digital media for over three decades. Aukram’s work and philosophy is best characterized by a quote from his words:
As a media artist working with photography, film, video and digital media for over three decades, art has been a bridge that connects me to other cultures in the world. My work focuses on people, places and events that I have experienced in my travels throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, North America and the Caribbean. I am committed to promoting multicultural and global education, specializing in the aesthetics of people, places and events in Africa and the African Diaspora. I have crossed the regions of the world in my quest to capture through my lens, the humanity, spirit and dignity of the people I have photographed.
