Documentary photographer and photojournalist Giles Duley will discuss his photo project, The Legacy of War, at California College of the Arts in San Francisco on February 19. Duley’s work captures people who have been forced into refugee status because of war as well as people dedicated to working in war zones, such as those who work with Médecins Sans Frontières. In 2011, while on a mission with the US Army’s 75th Cavalry in Afghanistan, Duley stepped on an IED and lost both his legs and an arm in the explosion. He speaks at conferences around the world, including TED, recounting his work and vision.

Born in London in 1971, Duley spent ten years as an editorial photographer in the fashion and music industries in both the US and Europe before he began to focus on humanitarian work. His photographs have been exhibited and published worldwide in many respected publications including Vogue, GQ, Esquire, Rolling Stone, Sunday Times, The Observer, and New Statesman. In 2010 he was nominated for an Amnesty International Media Award and was a winner at the Prix de Paris in 2010 and 2012.


Lecture co-sponsored by the Northern California Chapter of the U.S. Fulbright Association.
