Sean Gallagher

Sean Gallagher is a British environmental photojournalist, videographer and multimedia producer who has been based in Asia for more than seven years. His work focuses on highlighting environmental issues and crises, with a specific emphasis on developing nations in Asia including China, India and Indonesia. Graduating in zoology from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in England, his background in science has led to his desire to communicate important global ecological issues through visual storytelling. His recent work on environmental issues in China was acknowledged as “some of the most striking images on display at [the] Copenhagen climate change conference,” by the BBC World Service. He is a six-time recipient of Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting travel grants and was the first winner of the David Alan Harvey Fund for Emerging Photographers in 2008. His work has been published internationally, appearing in Newsweek Magazine, TIME, CNN, The New York Times, National Geographic News, The Atlantic and BBC News.
