Dan Archer is an award-winning journalist who has been working as a graphic journalist for over a decade. He chose the medium of comics reportage for its ability to allow readers to visualise his subjects without them needing to appear on camera, protecting their identities while preserving the power and impact of their stories. He focuses on human rights-related topics in his work, and is accustomed to respecting the sensitivities associated with telling the stories of survivors of human trafficking, sexual exploitation of minors, domestic violence, mental health, homelessness, incarceration and state-sponsored violence. His work has been supported by the BBC, Vice, Associated Press, the Colombian government, Open Society, European Journalism Centre and he has a Maynard Institute Award for mental health reporting. He was also an Image and Voices of Hope reporting fellow, for which he received trauma reporting training.
