HENRY WISMAYER is a freelance writer and essayist based in London.
His essays, features and commentary have appeared in over 70 publications, including the New York Times Magazine, New York Times, Washington Post, Guardian, TIME Magazine, Wall Street Journal, National Geographic Traveler, The Economist 1843, NBC News, Current Affairs, Travel + Leisure, Aeon, Quartz, BBC World, LA Review of Books, Outside, Daily Telegraph, Geographical, Vice, Vox, and CNN.
He has travelled to over 90 countries on six continents in pursuit of unusual and newsworthy stories (though he knows deep down that he probably shouldn't be counting).
His writing has been nominated for a variety of accolades and translated into over a dozen languages. He's still not really sure what he's doing.
