Sean Gallagher has spent the past seven years photographing climate change in China. The slideshow above shows the Tibetan Plateau, which covers approximately 25 percent of China’s surface area, spreading out over 2.5 million sq. km in the west of the country. Temperatures are rising on the Tibetan Plateau faster than anywhere else in Asia.
Through his photographs, Gallagher is able to highlight the major challenges associated with climate change and the resulting social issues that have appeared in recent years.
