Today I launch my new website. It's principally a place for me to show work I've produced in recent years. During my half decade as a video journalist for Reuters, and in the months since I went independent, I've reported on extremes of tragedy, bravery, beauty and humour, in China, other Asian countries including North Korea, and further afield. It is one of my regrets that I didn't create a space in which to reflect more personally on these experiences, to tell the story behind the story, or describe the moments or characters that so often reveal more about a place or a situation than headlines. That's what I'll try to do on this blog.
