Award-winning British photographer and triple amputee Giles Duley returns to Afghanistan

From Newstalk in Ireland.

Giles Duley was an award-winning photographer whose work took him to south Sudan, Angola and Bangladesh.

But it was on a trip to Afghanistan that the British photographer’s life changed completely.

Giles stepped on an IED in 2011 and the blast blew off both his legs and his left arm.

Speaking to Orla Barry last year, Mr Duley said he was determined not only to work as a photographer again but to return to Kabul.
Feb. 18 Giles Duley reappeared on The Green Room to talk about his return to Afghanistan, a journey which was documented by the Dispatches programme on Channel Four.
