I discuss how the project idea was conceived, the main challenges in carrying out the work and what I think the future holds for the forests of Cambodia. To learn more about this project, see the project page on the Pulitzer Center website HERE. SIGN-UP TO SEAN GALLAGHER’S NEWSLETTER FOR UPDATES ON NEW WORK, PRINT SALES, WORKSHOPS & EVENTS.
This past week National Geographic published their new story, “Cambodia’s biggest lake is running dry, taking forests and fish with it” and I am pleased to have a selection of my images supporting the article. Followers of my work will know I spent time in Cambodia earlier this year, documenting the challenges facing the country’s forests, as part of my project Cambodia Burning. The ecosystems of the country are intertwined and the loss of forests across the country is having […]
Happy to share with you this recent publication from the UK’s Guardian Newspaper. This story focuses on the rise in popularity of milk in China and the potential environmental consequences this is going to have for the world. It’s an important and significant story and I was pleased to be able to provide some of the visuals that went with this story. “China’s leaders have championed milk as the emblem of a modern, affluent society – but their radical plan […]
Very pleased to share this recent publication with you all from an assignment I did late last year in Mongolia for Smithsonian Magazine. The story focuses on the revival of the Przewalski Horse, Mongolia’s wild equine which is experiencing a resurgence after being successfully reintroduced in the wild. It’s a rare good-news story from the world of conservation. Travelling to the frigid Mongolian steppe near the capital Ulan Bator, I spent a few days stalking these beautiful animals as they […]
This week a story is published on the Wall Street Journal titled, “Inside Uber’s Fight With Its Chinese Nemesis, Didi Kuaidi“, looking at the rivalry between the two companies looking to capture the taxi market in China. While outside the normal scope of many of the stories I typically cover, I was approached by the Journal to illustrate this story through images of drivers who use both Uber and Didi Kuaidi, along with portraits of management figures at the latter […]

This particular clip is from Tokyo, Japan and focuses on the world’s busiest pedestrian crossing…Shibuya! To get to Shibuya crossing, take one of the many JR trains or subway to Shibuya station. Once there, all you need to do is follow the crowds and head to the north-east corner of […]

Part of The Economist‘s new series, ‘Asia’s Second World War Ghosts’, this collection of stories attempts to highlight the lingering emotions that still survive to this day amongst the people of Asia who still live with the consequences of war. The video above was shot by myself, with editing and […]
[new_royalslider id=”43″] I recently got a call from the Natural Resources Defense Council’s onEarth magazine to take on an interesting assignment that I thought I would share with you here today on the blog. Have you ever wondered where your jeans come from? If you’ve followed my recent work, I hope you might of least thought about where your clothing in general has come from. You might remember my recent story from India, The Toxic Price of Leather, which highlighted […]
It was always an odd sight. For most, Beijing’s Wonderland was glimpsed from a car, or bus, en route to the Great Wall of China. A double-take was all that most remembered, wondering if they had actually just seen what appeared to be a half-finished Disneyland next to farmland on the outskirts of the city.
