I’ll be at the Today Art Museum in Beijing next weekend to give a presentation title ‘Environmental Storytelling: Using Imagery to Spread Awareness‘, about my work documenting environmental issues across Asia.
We’ll be discussing the role of photography in communicating environmental issues in the modern media landscape and I’ll be showing images from my work in China, India and Indonesia.
The talk will take place from 15:00 on the 2nd Floor of Building 2 of the museum. It’s free to attend and there will be Chinese translation.
Hope to see you there!

From the headwaters of the Tibetan Plateau to the islands that make up the Indonesian archipelago, Gallagher has spent numerous years documenting some of the most pressing conflicts between nature and humanity for some of the world’s leading news outlets.

With the use of striking images and engaging storytelling, award-winning photojournalist Sean Gallagher will discuss and share his findings throughout three of Asia’s most influential countries: China, India and Indonesia.
