Kendall Hunter is the author of the Swiss instalment of the global guidebook series, Culture Smart! Originally from Banff, AB Canada, she now lives in Toronto, ON. Kendall is also a freelance journalist, photographer and mother of two teenage global citizens. As a youth, looking to be altered by a world different from the pristine surroundings in which she grew up, Kendall worked for a year as a volunteer in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she was on the front lines as a news photographer for a national independent newspaper. To bridge the gap between her exceptional experience in this country and life in Canada, she wrote her first book, Black Taxi: Shooting South Africa, published by Turnstone Press of Winnipeg.
With Culture Dock, she is taking cultural awareness to a whole new level – one that she hopes will further ignite the curiosity of travelers around the world. She passionately believes there is deep wisdom in knowing we are all an accumulation of our history, customs and contemporary culture; to understand differences is to bring humanity as a whole closer together.
Kendall is also now working on her third book, a memoir that has involved travelling to meet some of the world’s top women photojournalists. She has also lived in London, U.K., Wales and Switzerland and has traveled throughout Europe, Southeast Asia and Northern Africa.
