I am delighted to announce here on my blog that this month’s issue of National Geographic China contains a 12-page essay of my images and text, about my Pulitzer Center-sponsored work on “China’s Growing Sands”. This is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to a new audience in China and bring wider attention to the issue of desertification, which is gripping the north of the nation.
I considered just posting photographs of the layout here as a traditional tearsheet display, but then I thought it would be more fun to create a short video to showcase the layout. Also, this story only appears in the Chinese edition of National Geographic this month, so I wanted those not based in China to be able to see the excellent layout, as if you were flicking through yourself.
Please click on the video above to begin and thumb-through the magazine article with me on Vimeo. If you prefer YouTube, please go here.
If you are in China now, or over the coming few weeks, please pick up a copy. You should be able to buy it on most newsstands across the country.
Always happy to hear your thoughts. What do you think? Do you like the spread?
