Giles Duley, Photojournalist; Humanitarian Jonathan Curiel, Journalist - Moderator
While on foot patrol in Afghanistan, Duley, an award-winning photojournalist, stepped on a land mine and became a triple amputee, losing his arm and both legs. He is noted for both his portraits of the rich and famous, and his work which 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.
