"As CEO of Computer Aid International I have regularly commissioned Glenn and travelled with him on assignments all over the world.
His work is always of the highest professional standard but it is his respect for his subjects that is most impressive.
Whether we were working with earthquake survivors in Chile, in urban slums in Liberia or disabled people in Ethiopia, Glenn always had the human warmth to make people feel respected and comfortable while using his photographic talent to capture their stories in striking images".
