Award Winnning Photographer Spencer Wynn to Host bhopalmedicalappeal Instagram Account

30th anniversary story of the Bhopal India gas disaster at the Union Carbide plant. The plant today stands empty and overgrown with a few guards to secure the grounds and perimeter however, breaches in the surrounding wall sees local people coming and going through the wall to bath, toilet and children play. Animals also pass in and out of the wall to graze. Story by Jennifer Wells, Photography by Spencer Wynn.  This photo: Inside the Union Carbide laboratory. The glass containers still contain a variety of chemicals. (Some labels are readable)

Spencer Wynn is an internationally awarded editorial designer and documentary photographer. Working as a visual story teller he has lived in the Chinese deserts, the High Arctic, Greenland and the slums of Bhopal. While spending almost two years on a feature about Bhopal’s gas tragedy, Wynn visited and stayed in Bhopal, to cover the 30th anniversary. The people, the health and the resilience of those he met in the worst affected areas of Bhopal were the inspiration for Wynn’s documentary work on Bhopal.

We’re delighted to welcome Spencer as the latest guest host of our Instagram account starting today, 17th June.
