The view from my hotel as I wake up to my first morning in the state of Punjab, in the north-west of India, on the border with Pakistan. There is a quiet environmental and health crisis taking place here that I shall be documenting over the coming week. More updates soon… @sean_gallagher_photo This is part of a new body of work ‘Toxic Development: Pollution in India’, sponsored by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
Hi Everyone – My name is Sean Gallagher, a British environmental photojournalist based in Asia. This month I am travelling across India documenting how various forms of pollution are affecting people and the environment here. My journey is supported by a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and I have been in the field for 3 weeks already. This week I am in Punjab, in the north-west of the country photographing issues surrounding pesticide poisoning and the effects on rural communities. The image above is from one of my previous stops, the Ganges River at Kolkata, where I was looking at how air, water and soil pollution are affecting the city. Please check the Pulitzer Center site this week for the full story. Looking forward to sharing updates with you all here – Sean @sean_gallagher_photo
