KATHERINE JACK

Katherine Jack is a British photographer living in Palawan, Philippines since 2004.

Palawan is made up of over 1,700 islands – a Unesco Biosphere Reserve designed for a balanced relationship between people and nature.

Through her project Palawan Seas, Katherine is exploring our universal human connection to the ocean – from the ancient traditions of indigenous people to new projects to revive coral reefs. These ecosystems, which are among the most abundant and diverse in the world, are on the brink of extinction due to global climate change.

Katherine has worked with the World Wildlife Fund and Tubbataha Reefs World Heritage Site as a photographer and writer. As a freelancer, she has reported for newspapers, magazines, radio and internet publications and has conceptualised and contributed to books, including Palawan Islands (Tapan, 2012]) and Palawan and its Global Connections (Eder & Evangelista, 2014).

Before moving to the Philippines, Katherine worked on the editorial staff of Geographical magazine and interned at Magnum Photos London.
