Laurens Korteweg spent his university days in Rotterdam, where he obtained the masters Marketing Management (Business Administration), and Media and Society (Journalism) from Erasmus University. A lack of attention for social issues in his program ‘business administration’ is what led him to Humanity in Action The Netherlands, where he partook in the 2011 Amsterdam Fellowship. Ever since that moment, Laurens has stayed connected to Humanity in Action The Netherlands, and now fulfills the role of treasurer within the board. He is currently employed at World Press Photo as Director of Exhibitions. In this role he is responsible for all the exhibitions of World Press Photo, currently over 100 annually. Laurens also works as a strategic advisor for the Photography Ethics Centre.
