Daniel Berehulak is an award-winning independent photojournalist based in Mexico City, Mexico. Born to immigrant parents, Daniel grew up on a farm outside of Sydney, Australia. Their Ukrainian practicality did not consider photography to be a viable trade to pursue so at an early age Daniel worked on the farm and at his father's refrigeration company. After graduating from The University of New South Wales with a degree in History, his career as a photographer started humbly; shooting sports matches for a guy who ran his business from his garage. In 2002 he started freelancing with Getty Images in Sydney shooting mainly sport.More
From 2005 Daniel was based in London, and from 2009 in New Delhi, as a staff news photographer with Getty Images.
Daniel has visited over 60 countries covering history-shaping events including the Iraq war, the trial of Saddam Hussein, child labour in India, Afghanistan elections and the return of Benazir Bhutto to Pakistan, and documented people coping with the aftermath of the Japanese Tsunami and the Chernobyl disaster.
His work has been recognized with two Pulitzer prizes: in 2015, for Feature Photography for his coverage of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa; and in 2017 for Breaking News Photography for his coverage of the so-called war on drugs in the Philippines, both for The New York Times. In 2011 he was also a Pulitzer finalist for his coverage of the 2010 floods in Pakistan. These are some of several honors his photography has earned including: six World Press Photo awards; two Photographer Of The Year awards from Pictures of the Year International; and the prestigious John Faber, Olivier Rebbot and Feature Photography awards from the Overseas Press Club, amongst others.
As of July 2013, Daniel embarked upon a freelance career to focus on a combination of long-term personal projects, breaking news and client assignments.
He is a regular contributor to The New York Times.
