WALKING WOUNDED: RETURN TO THE FRONTLINE

While he was embedded with the US army in Afghanistan, British humanitarian photographer Giles Duley stepped on an IED. The explosion left him with horrific injuries and, ultimately, as a triple amputee.

A year and a half after sustaining injuries that left him hovering between life and death for months, he kept the promise he made to himself on the day of the incident: to return to Afghanistan to complete his work documenting the impact of the invasion on civilians, and now focusing on the wounded who have sustained injuries similar to his.

This film documents Giles’s courageous return to Afghanistan as he undertakes his first major photographic assignment since the explosion, in the country where he very nearly lost his life.

So powerful... a beautifully understated piece of work

The Telegraph

In this astonishing film he [Giles Duley] returns, 18 months later, to fulfil his mission to document the human cost of the war. Quite extraordinary

The Daily Mail

Giles Duley clearly has nothing to prove by going back, as a photographer or a man, but his
journey is all the more affirming and inspiring for that
