I was fortunate enough to have spent a number of my childhood years growing up on the sub-continent and every time I return there as soon as the plane doors open there is an immediate sense of memory that hits me and positively too. Of course the continent as a whole is among the most diverse culturally as well as geographically too and every corner offers it’s own surprises and opportunities and the contrasts between the humid rainforests of Borneo and the frozen lakes of a wintery Japan are as great as anywhere. Wildlife is under probably the greatest pressure of any of the continents here right now and so each and every image feels even more important to assist in stressing these challenges and their importance, and these are some of my favourites from over the years.
