Ma vie en rose
Having filed copy from steaming volcanoes in Iceland, the Prime Minister’s office in Tuvalu and deforested jungles in the Amazon, freelance photojournalist Kate Hodal has written about the way Fairtrade is obviating the caste system in India, investigated how the internet has changed the way young Singaporeans vote, and photographed migrant workers in Southeast Asia.
A few of the inspirational people she has met along the way include Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky, Welsh transsexual pastor Dian Parry, Brazilian musician Seu Jorge, and incest survivor and author Alice Jamieson.
Kate is the Southeast Asia correspondent for the Guardian and her work can also be found in Monocle, the Christian Science Monitor, Sunday Telegraph, Times of London, CNNGo, Press Association and Hindustan Times, among others. For further reading of her work with the Guardian, please click here.

Kate is currently based in Bangkok.
