Evan Kafka Shoots Jake Porway for WIRED UK

Evan Kafka was commissioned by WIRED UK to shoot portraits of Jake Porway, founder and executive of the non-profit DataKind, an emerging leader in crunching and analyzing enormous amounts of data. Jake, a data scientist and self-proclaimed machine learning enthusiast, constantly seeks new ways to help machines “make sense of things for the greater good”. One of his latest endeavors assists refugees in locating their displaced family members through Refugee Unite.

Jake’s good samaritan efforts haven’t gone unnoticed as he was recently contacted by The White House for his endeavors. And if that’s not enough, Jake has a new show The Numbers Game! appearing on National Geographic. You go Jake!

Please see below for images and outtakes from the photo shoot.
