ADA Teams with Nikon on Photo Exhibition

The Averted Disaster Award (ADA) announced it’s teaming up with Nikon and the WaterBear Network to develop a photo exhibition reflecting the work of the 2022 ADA runner-up submission. Nikon Ambassador, Hermeilio Miguel Aquino (Kino), a London based photographer, director, and multidisciplinary artist is shooting the project. The exhibition will debut at the Understanding Risk 22 global conference in Florianópolis, Brazil in November. The 2022 ADA winning and runner-up submissions will be officially announced at that time.

Raised in the South Bronx of New York, Kino began his career as an actor. He went on to study film directing at Columbia College in Chicago, and pursued further studies at the Saint Petersburg Theatre Academy in Russia and the Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London. Kino came to photography at age 30, and has since worked with a number of fashion brands including Pantene, Kite Eyewear, and O2. In addition to his fashion and portraiture work, Kino has developed several projects on environmental and social issues, including content for the refugee organization FODI and the SKY ZERO footprint fund.

Following the showing at UR22, the exhibition is expected to travel to other locations around the world.
