After graduating with a degree in biology, J. Carrier went on to become a drummer for a punk band, recorded a couple of albums and toured throughout the US and Europe. It was after living in Ecuador as a Peace Corps volunteer that he began his career as a photographer. Since then he has worked as a freelance photographer, and is currently based in Kenya. In addition to his editorial work J has traveled extensively for Save The Children most recently covering the drought in Ethiopia. His publication credits include: The Washington Post, The New York Times, Fortune and Le Monde.
Metro Collective is an international coalition of independent photographers. What unites us is shared dedication to the expressive documentary spirit, where authorship and a personal visual aesthetic are grounded in humanistic stories and themes. While all our members make a living with photography – whether it’s news/editorial assignments, commercial work, NGO jobs, etc – this website is an ongoing compilation of features and portfolios that represent the individual visions of Metro photographers and their commitment to particular subjects. A common home for our best and most personal work.
