ILLEGAL SAND MINING, INDIA FOR WIRED MAGAZINE

In March this year I was commissioned by Wired Magazine to photograph illegal sand mining in India. With severe environmental and social consequences, India’s booming construction industry is driving a demand for sand, much of which is illegally stripped from rivers and farmland. My photos accompany a great piece by Vince Beiser and below is the beautiful layout the team at Wired produced for the May issue of the magazine.

The story can be viewed online at Wired, there’s an interview I did about the assignment and a personal edit in my commissions section here
