Giles Duley Biography

Giles Duley is a CEO, photographer, writer, chef, and presenter from London. His work focuses on the long-term humanitarian impact of conflict.

Starting his career as a music photographer, Duley worked with the likes of Mariah Carey, Oasis, and Lenny Kravitz for publications including Q, Vogue, Sunday Times and Elle. In 2000 his image of Marilyn Manson was voted amongst the 100 greatest rock photographs of all time.

In 2004 Duley changed his focus to documentary work, partnering with well-respected charities such as HI (Humanity and Inclusion), EMERGENCY, Save the Children and UNHCR to highlight lesser-known stories deserving of public attention and action. Although documenting challenging, and at times, horrific situations, Duley 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 Iraq, Afghanistan, South Sudan, DR Congo, Angola, Bangladesh, Kenya, Ukraine, Jordan, Lebanon, Colombia, Vietnam and Nigeria among others.

In 2015 he started his Legacy of War project, which looks to explore common themes of conflict. A core part of the project is collaborations with other artists and writers to reach a wider audience. These collaborations have included the musicians Massive Attack and PJ Harvey.

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.

Duley is CEO and Founder of the NGO Legacy of War Foundation and international charity supporting communities and individuals as the rebuild their lives after conflict. He is a campaigner for the rights of both refugees and those living with disability.

As a presenter he has made two Unreported Worlds for C4 and he has produced and presented the six-part VICE tv series, The One-Armed Chef, which aired in 2022. In 2019 he was awarded the Amnesty Media Award for Photojournalism.
