Giles Duley - Afghanistan(2012) Exhibition at KK Outlet KK OUTLET UNVEILS GILES DULEY’S LATEST AFGHANISTAN PHOTOGRAPHY SERIES, AS HE RETURNS TO THE COUNTRY WHERE NEARLY LOST HIS LIFE.
Whilst embedded with the US army in Afghanistan, British humanitarian photographer Giles Duley stepped on an IED. The explosion left him with horrific injuries and ultimately, a triple amputee.
18 months after sustaining injuries that meant he hovered between and life and death, he kept the promise he made to himself the day of the incident: To return to Afghanistan to complete his work documenting the impact of the invasion on civilians.
In October 2012 Duley returned to the country where he very nearly lost his life and undertook his first major photographic assignment since the explosion. KK Outlet will showcase this new series in an exhibition which runs throughout March.
This new body of work carries on where he left off. A project punctuated by a terrifying personal trauma but one that remains at its heart, exactly the same as when it began. As Duley explains, “The work I do hasn’t changed, but the audience has got bigger. I’m telling the same stories which have always been important to me but my voice has got louder.”
Private View: Thursday 7 March 7 – 9pm
Exhibition Runs: 5 – 30 March 2013
KK Outlet - 42 Hoxton Square - London - N1 6PB
