EMERGENCY: GINO STRADA AND GILES DULEY IN CONVERSATION

Gino Strada in conversation with Giles Duley and introduced by John Mulholland

Wednesday, 3 July 2013 Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church
7pm till 9.30pm
London

 

An evening of photos and words about the work of Emergency, with Gino Strada, founder of Emergency and Giles Duley, photographer protagonist of Channel4 documentary "The Walking Wounded". Introduced by John Mulholland, editor of the Observer.

Gino and Giles will first be introduced by John. Giles will then show photographs of Emergency's work in Sudan and Afghanistan, discussing the images with Gino. Then a more general discussion about Emergency's ongoing projects, needs and plans for the future, this will be done in the form of questions from Giles. The public will then be free to ask questions.


The event will be conducted in English


Gino Strada, for the very first time participating in a public talk in London, graduated in medicine and trauma surgery from the University of Milan in 1978. In 1988 he decided to apply his surgical experience to helping and treating war victims. From 1989 to 1994 he worked in war zones across the world from Ayacucho, Peru to Kabul, Afghanistan, with the Geneva-based International Red Cross. The experience accumulated from years of war surgery made him realise the need for a small, agile, highly specialised medical organisation and in 1994 with few resources he and a group of colleagues founded Emergency, an NGO that provides free, high quality medical and surgical treatment to the victims of war, landmines and poverty. Since its establishment, Emergency has treated more than 5 million people in 16 countries.
Strada is also the author of the books "Green Parrots" and "Buskashi", which sold hundreds of thousands of copies.

 

Giles Duley worked for 10 years as a fashion and music photographer before becoming an accomplished humanitarian photographer. His work has been exhibited and published worldwide in many respected publications including Vogue, GQ, Esquire, Rolling Stone, Sunday Times, The Observer and New Statesman. In 2010 he was nominated for an Amnesty International Media Award and was a winner at the Prix de Paris in 2010 & 2012. His self-portrait was selected for the 2012 Taylor Wessing Exhibition at the Natinal Portrait Gallery. In 2011, whilst working in Afghanistan, Duley stepped on an improvised explosive device. He was severely injured, losing both legs and an arm.
In 2012 he returned to work, documenting the plight of injured Afghani civilians at the EMERGENCY hospital in Kabul.
