Waterfront Building, University of Suffolk, Ipswich. 

The University of Suffolk and Suffolk Refugee Support is pleased to present an internationally renowned photographic project.

Legacy of War by Giles Duley is the result of five years of work documenting the long-term effects of conflict globally. It will be on display in the University’s Waterfront Building from 25 April-21 May.

Giles Duley was on patrol with the 75th Cavalry Regiment, United States Army in Afghanistan in 2011 when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED). He was severely injured, losing both legs and an arm.

Suffolk Refugee Support are delighted to present this exhibition which features powerful pictures documenting the journey of a group of refugees.

Martin Simmonds, Suffolk Refugee Support, said:

“The exhibition is a series of images and stories of refugees, to raise awareness of the issues affecting refugees and asylum seekers across the world, and here in Suffolk - issues of trauma, hardship, and hope.  Duley’s work captures the strength of those who fight adversity.”

Giles Duley’s work has been exhibited and published worldwide in many respected publications. 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 National Portrait Gallery.
