TIME Magazine - Solomon Islands - John Wilson
It was a challenging story to document, working in remote locations sometimes from canoes in pitching seas and often at night and stretching the limits of photographic equipment as well as myself.
Testimonial from TIME Magazine writer Rory Callinan: In February 2006, he accompanied me to the Solomon Islands to investigate the widespread exploitation of youth by multi-national logging and fishing concerns. If reporting this story was difficult then gaining photographic evidence seemed almost impossible but to Johns credit, he shot extraordinary images one of which became a cover for Time. He faced almost impossible shooting conditions, working at night, on moving boats and confronting hostile subjects in the crewmembers who were involved.
