While most friends and colleagues remember me as a photographer, I am actually also an editor – and a writer. After I moved back to China, I worked for Modern Weekly for three and a half years as an editor, taking care of both its visuals and reporting. I upgraded their Special Report section, created VISION, a section dedicated to photo stories and photo essays. Here are a few VISION layouts, and a few from special reports and cover stories.
