Front Page of the Globe and Mail – 1st October 2009

I got a surprise yesterday evening when I got a text from a colleague telling me that one of my photos had run on the front page of Canada’s national newspaper, the Globe and Mail. Regular readers of this blog will know that I have been contributing the visuals from China quite a lot to the Globe and Mail recently. They are a great team to work with and I was delighted to see that they had decided to run my photo of Mao Zedong’s personal photographer Hou Bo, taken at her home in Beijing, as part of the coverage of China’s 60th birthday.

If you missed my last post about this assignment and meeting this remarkable photographer, please head here to read it.

  1. He Sean,
    Small world, I saw that picture in my office, I work for a large newspaper company here is Canada (not the Globe) and seeing a front page photo from an old school mate was really cool!
    Hope all is well,

    • Hi Alex…

      That’s great that you saw this photo! They ran it pretty big, which I was obviously happy with. Seems like a long way from rural Lancashire huh?! Hope you’re well too.

      Best, Sean
