18. ’Losing three limbs in Afghanistan gave me the gift of connecting with suffering’: The Story of Anti-War Photographer Giles Duley Asylum Speakers Podcast with Jaz O'Hara: Stories of Migration

    • Arts

Prepare yourself for what is definitely one of the most amazing conversations that I’ve ever had. You might want to take notes during this episode, I felt like I did whilst Giles spoke these words to me. I wanted to remember every word that left his mouth...
My guest this week is Giles Duley. Giles describes himself as an anti-war photographer, documenting humanity, love and connection in conflict zones all over the world. After years of working as a photographer in fashion and music, he realised he was not fulfilled in his purpose as a photographer, and set up Legacy of War (http://legacyofwar.com/), a photo project to connect people experiencing the impact of war. Very soon after, Giles stood on a landmine whilst photographing soldiers in Afghanistan, losing both legs and his left arm. Giles’s own body became part of the story that he had set out to tell... the impact of war on innocent people. 
In this episode Giles shares stories of the people he has met along the way, and the impact that they have had on his life. Listen out for Olive in Rwanda, Khouloud in Lebanon, Dawood in Mosul and more. Legacy of War has gone on to become a charitable foundation (https://www.legacyofwarfoundation.com/) which now not only shares people’s stories, but changes the direction of them for the better.
I’m so excited to hear your thoughts on this episode and I hope that this is the first of more that we record together because Giles has so many important stories and so much wisdom to share.
