Daniel Berehulak

Daniel Berehulak is a staff photographer for The New York Times. He grew up on a farm outside of Sydney, Australia as the son of refugees who fled Soviet Ukraine during World War II. Despite being far from Ukraine, his parents passed on its language and culture, greatly influencing his worldview.

Daniel covers national and international events, including humanitarian crises, wars, and global health issues, focusing on how these events impact individuals, families, and society at large. Daniel’s work has been recognized with multiple awards, including three Pulitzer Prizes: in 2015, for Feature Photography for coverage of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa; in 2017, for Breaking News Photography for coverage of the so-called war on drugs in the Philippines; and in 2023, as part of The Times team honored for international reporting for coverage of the war in Ukraine. He is currently based in Mexico City.

From 2005 to 2009, Daniel was based in London as a staff news photographer with Getty Images. He then shifted to New Delhi to advance Getty’s coverage of the Indian subcontinent with a focus on the social and political instability of Pakistan and its neighbors. As of July 2013, Daniel joined Reportage by Getty Images as a key represented photographer to focus on a combination of long-term personal projects, breaking news, and client assignments. He is a regular contributor to The New York Times, TIME Magazine, and Der Spiegel in particular, and his work appears internationally in newspapers and magazines world wide.
