Jason Tanner is a British photojournalist currently based in Islamabad, Pakistan.
His professional career began covering news, sport and commercial photography in UK.
His extensive experience of travel in some 53 countries, including China, Zimbabwe, Iran, Pakistan and the Philippines led him to relocate to Bangkok in early 2008 focusing his efforts on coverage of humanitarian issues.
During 2008 he covered the earthquake in China, which resulted in the deaths of more than 68000 people. He covered both disputed lections in Zimbabwe recording human rights abuses by the ruling the Zanu-PF government against supporters of the MDC. He later returned to Zimbabwe in December 2008 to cover the Cholera outbreak, which claimed the lives of more than 4200 citizens.
In the summer of 2008 he documented the fight for peace in Mindanao, Southern Philippines where, after a deal to expand the Muslim autonomous zone was blocked by the Philippines Supreme Court, rebels from the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) occupied some 15 villages in the region triggering a retaliatory assault by the Philippine army resulting in the deaths of more than 200 civilians over a 48hrs period.
In late 2008 he embarked on a current long-term project documenting The Price of Instability in Pakistan.
His work has been published in the UK, Europe , USA and Australasia in publications such as The Times (UK), The Telegraph (UK), Sydney Morning Herald (AUS), Courier, TIME Magazine, Le Monde and Paris Match.
He has also contributed images for use in campaigns by UNHCR, Save the Children and the ICRC.
