Giles Duley, Photojournalist; Humanitarian

While on foot patrol in Afghanistan, Duley, an award-winning photographer, stepped on a land mine and became a triple amputee, losing his arm and both legs. Prior to his life-changing injuries, he was noted for his portraits of the rich and famous, but now his work focuses on humanitarian issues and the stark consequences of conflicts on civilians. Duley, who has been honored by Amnesty International, will show excerpts from his latest documentary, which encompasses Syrian refugees.
