Details

In one of the deadliest urban battles since World War II, the war against ISIS in Mosul took a devastating toll on the residents of Iraq’s second-largest city. In June and July 2017, I documented the work of international medics operating out of makeshift field clinics behind the frontline in the city’s ancient quarter. The stories captured highlight the trauma faced by civilians caught in a raging battle, as well as the incredible work of the volunteer medics who saved countless lives at great risk to their own.

Throughout my career as a freelance photojournalist, I’ve directed my focus to issues surrounding political and military conflicts, human rights, and humanitarian crises. This seminar will present a snapshot of my personal journey from a small village in Wales to the frontline in Iraq, and some of the compelling human stories behind the images I’ve captured along the way.
