Biography

Tomas van Houtryve is an artist, photographer and author who engages critical issues around the world.

He is the author of the book Behind the Curtains of 21st Century Communism. His groundbreaking Blue Sky Days series about America’s drone wars was published in Harper’s in 2014 as the largest photo portfolio in the magazine’s 164-year history.
