<span id="printable_content">UCCA welcomes two-time Pulitzer Center Grant recipient Sean Gallagher, who has spent the past two years traveling across <a class="ml-smartlink" href="http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/international/countriesandterritories/china/index.html">China</a&gt; documenting the country's fight against desertification and disappearing wetlands.<br>
Having the ability to visually communicate overarching themes, theories and ideas is essential to helping the public understand sometimes complex and seemingly disjointed issues.</span><br>
<span id="printable_content">Gallagher's workshop will focus on the art and science of effectively photographing large-scale environmental issues and conveying eco-stories through imagery. He will also provide participants with useful advice about identifying themes and stories, and offer tips about the process of eco-filmmaking, from shooting to distribution.</span><br>
The <strong>free</strong> workshop will be given in English with Chinese translation, at the UCCA La Suite in <strong>Beijing</strong>, China, on <strong>November 20th</strong>. Th event is hosted by the <strong>Ullens Center</strong>, in partnership with <strong>Greening the Beige</strong>. <br>
