Love, Hope & War

Love, Hope & War


Award winning photographer, activist and popular TED speaker Giles Duley will be in Leeds for the first time to talk about his incredible life story and work documenting survivors of conflict. 

Giles, who lost two legs and an arm after stepping on a landmine in Afghanistan in 2011 will talk about overcoming the odds, and his work documenting survivors of conflict around the world.  

Giles has collaborated and inspired people like Angelina Jolie, Massive Attack and PJ Harvey with his incredible story, talent and determination. His TED talk has been watched more than 200,000 times. He’s appeared in Esquire, The Independent, The New York Times, The Times and Marie-Claire, and won numerous awards and accolades for his work, and is the Founder and CEO of Legacy of War Foundation, helping communities around the world, affected by conflict to rebuild themselves.

Giles will be introduced on the evening by Siobhan Sinnerton, director and producer of the multi award-winning documentary Walking Wounded: Return to the Frontline, featuring Giles. Siobhan is Channel 4 Commissioning Editor for News and Current Affairs and ‘For Sama’ Executive Producer, the critically acclaimed documentary which to date has won over 50 prestigious awards internationally and has been nominated for four Baftas and an Oscar in 2020.
