Photographer Shane Lavalette has made a career shedding a hopeful light on disparaging situations as he travels the world with his enlightening lens. The world traveler has seen and shot incredible moments both at home in America and abroad in the slums of India, the depths of Ireland and many more.

His photographic perspective is eye-opening, saddening and inspiring all at the same time, as each shot is telling of a lifestyle unfamiliar to most westerners. Every photo and series in Lavalette's portfolio shares this common theme and whether he is shooting an individual subject or a group, he takes viewers on a journey not to be easily forgotten.
