My name is Sean Hawkey and I'm a photographer and journalist. A quick look at my archive will give you a good idea of the social focus and international scope of my work. My work has been featured in the New York Times, BBC, The Guardian, The Independent, the Morning Star, Huffington Post, The Telegraph, Science Magazine, the Journal of the Royal Photographic Society and others. My work has also been used by 200+ organisations including Fairtrade networks, ACT Alliance, the Centre for Journalism Ethics, World Council of Churches, World Health Organisation, World Bank, UNESCO, UNISDR, International Dalit Solidarity Network, Greenpeace, Climate Action Network and the RMT trade union. My photographs have been exhibited as joint and solo exhibitions in Mexico, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, UK and Spain.
Before freelance photography I worked in international aid, I taught architecture and I ran communications for global NGOs. I'm based in the UK and I'm working freelance.
And, here's a photo of me recently at the Foto13 festival in Mexico with wrestling legend Fishman (Photo by Jorge Lezman).
