LA: Giles Duly

  • Skylight Studios 10050 Constellation Blvd LA CA 90065

As part of the Annenberg Space for Photography's Iris Nights Lecture Series, Giles Duly presents Giles Duly: From Fashion Photographer to Documenting the Legacy of War. 

His most recent work documents the refugee crisis for the UNHCR.

 

Giles Duley worked as a successful fashion and music photographer for ten years. Becoming disillusioned with celebrity culture, he decided to abandon photography and left London to begin work as a full-time care-giver. It was in this role that he rediscovered his craft and its power to tell the stories of those without a voice. In 2000, he returned to photography, personally funding trips to document the work of non-governmental organizations and the stories of those affected by conflict across the world.
