Giles Duley

“My friends love this idea of me being half man, half camera.”


Duley is a documentary photographer, born in 1971 in London. His work focuses on humanitarian projects, working with well-respected charities such as Doctors Without Borders, Emergency, ICRC and UNHCR to highlight lesser-known stories deserving of public attention and action.

Although documenting challenging, and at times, horrific situations, Giles captures the strength of those who fight adversity rather than succumb. His photographs draw the viewer to the subject, creating intimacy and empathy for lives differing from ours only in circumstance.

His work has taken him to South Sudan, DR Congo, Angola, Bangladesh, Kenya, Ukraine and Nigeria among others.

He has won numerous awards as Doctors Without Borders Images of the Year, one Nominee Amnesty International Media Awards, one London Award Nominee and Prize Prix de Paris.

In 2011, whilst working in Afghanistan, Duley was severely injured by an IED. As a result of his injuries he is a triple-amputee. In 2012 he returned to Afghanistan to continue his work as a photographer.

His work has been exhibited and published world wide in many respected publications including Vogue, GQ, Esquire, Sunday Telegraph, Observer and The Sunday Times.
