Giles Duley

Film & Photography

Giles was born in London in 1971. He worked as an editorial photographer in the ?fashion and music industries in both the US and Europe but, since 2000, he focused his ?work on documenting humanitarian projects and the effects of conflict on civilians. That work has been published worldwide across many respected publications including Vogue, ?GQ, Esquire, Rolling Stone, the Sunday Times and New Statesman.

Duley has worked with many well respected charities such as Médecins sans Frontiérs, ?IOM and UNHCR to highlight lesser known stories which he believes are deserving of public attention and action.? Although documenting challenging, and at times, horrific situations, Duley manages to capture the? strength of those who fight their adversity rather than succumb. His photographs draw ?the viewer to the subject, creating intimacy and empathy for lives only differing from ours in circumstance.

In 2010 Duley was nominee for Amnesty International’s Photographer of the Year and was? a winner at the Prix de Paris in 2012. Shortly afterwards, he was severely injured by an IED while on patrol with a US Forces in Afghanistan.? As a result of the explosion he lost both legs and his left arm but continues to be as passionate as ever about his work.
