Oliver Woods is a photographer with an eye for the story behind the story. From his portraits of the great and good in the Sunday Times Magazine, to his continent-hopping projects about the de-evolution of the carbon-burning world, he’s someone who clearly spends a lot of time observing his subjects before finding just the right moment to click the shutter.

Witness his Royal Photographic Society Wakelin Bursary-winning set on Jakarta’s epic traffic jams, and nature’s rebellion against them in the guise of torrential floods.
