Winners of 2016's Photo of the Year competition were sent on the photo commission of a lifetime. Meet the friendly faces and cheeky characters of Thailand's wildlife through the lens of Julia Wainwright..
"Wildlife photography was my original plan, but this trip became more about urban macaques, elephant welfare and birdlife, introducing unique photographic challenges to what was an enjoyable, full-on experience. In Lopburi, I saw the difficulties arising from people and macaques living in close proximity, and at the elephant sanctuaries in Kanchanaburi I saw first-hand the dedication of the people working to improve the animal's lives, while Samarn Bird Camp and Kaeng Krachan National Park allowed me to photograph birds and mammals I'd not seen before."
