“Well known for his gritty, black-and-white images of cops, hit men, drug addicts and crime scenes, photographer Jonathan Taylor has traveled all over Asia to report on everything from Agent Orange victims in Vietnam to a special police unit in Bangkok that helps pregnant women, stuck in traffic, give birth.

But versatility is the 43-year-old Englishman’s stock in trade. He also has a talent for shooting color portraits, commercial, fashion and corporate photography. Taylor studied photography at London College Of Printing (now Communication Arts). Then worked in a large commercial Fashion Photography Studio, working his way up from being a runner, assistant to established photographer. He moved on from there to photojournalism, working for many of the Fleet Street newspapers. Was posted as the European Photographer for The Straights Times, Singapore. Before moving to Asia in the early nineties.

He quickly established himself as an internationally acclaimed Photojournalist. His often hard hitting features hold nothing back. Full of raw impact and great journalism. On two occasions, his features have graced the cover of TIME Magazine. Many of his images have appeared in international publications like Britain’s Independent On Sunday Magazine, Marie Claire as well as the Guardian Magazine, Stern and the New York Times Magazine.

A resident of Bangkok since the early ’90s, Taylor’s eye-opening work is extremely well regarded. He was recently employed as Picture Editor on a regional section of The International Herald in Thailand. Has produced and been involved in numerous television documentaries, as Fixer and Producer, on subjects as diverse as sex slavery in Northern Thailand and Burma (BBC), a Midwife Thai Police Unit (Channel 3 France), Crystal Methamphetamine abuse in Asia (BBC and National Geographic Channel).
