In October 2015, Giles Duley was commissioned by the UNHCR to cross Europe and the Middle East attempting to put a human face to one of the biggest humanitarian crises of our time.

Duley visited fourteen countries to tell the stories of individuals and families forced to flee their homes. He chronicled the turmoil of Lebanon, the camps of Jordan and Iraq, hellish scenes on the beaches of Lesvos and the refugees’ arrival in Germany. Bringing together over 150 original photographs, this book captures how even in the midst of such horror and tragedy there is humour, the unexpected and, above all, humanity.

With texts by Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees and Robert Del Naja, Massive Attack.

It is not pity Duley feels, but unity…Duley prefers to call himself a storyteller than a photographer. His camera is a tool to achieve global reach rather than show off technical brilliance.’ - The Times

Reviews

‘It is not pity Duley feels, but unity…Duley prefers to call himself a storyteller than a photographer. His camera is a tool to achieve global reach rather than show off technical brilliance.’ - The Times

‘What is different [about photographers] is ... the emotional connection they make. That is what I love about Giles's photography. Looking at his images, we can feel what he feels. It's clear that he connects deeply to the human condition of people from all over the world.’ - Angelina Jolie

‘What an impressive man Giles Duley is, and his photographs are incredible.’ - Louise Minchin, BBC Breakfast

‘Duley documented [refugees’] stories in a series of deeply affecting images’ - The Observer

‘A remarkable collection of photo stories that provide a moving depiction and bring to life the human and frequently harrowing situations of refugees that are normally shielded from view behind largely hostile media coverage… a moving portrayal of the plight and humanity of refugees.’ - The Muslim World Book Review

‘The book should serve as a wakeup call for all authorities who have the power to alter the situation but continue to affirm their penchant for war.’ - Middle East Monitor

The Story

The Photographer

Giles Duley is an award-winning photographer who has spent the last decade documenting the effects of conflict on civilians across the globe. He donated a photograph to our fundraiser for EMERGENCY Hospitals in the 2021, a NGO he has supported a lot and is a trustee for. In 2011, while covering the war in Afghanistan, he was severely injured by an IED, but returned to work just eighteen months later. His work has been published worldwide in publications such as GQ, The Observer, Sunday Times and Vogue. He recently launched the Legacy of War, a five-year project documenting post-conflict communities. His book I Can Only Tell You What My Eyes See (Saqi Books) documents the refugee crisis, a task for which he was commissioned by the UNHCR.
