Details

With conflict and crises dominating the global news cycle, it can sometimes seem that we’re living in an irredeemably hopeless world. Yet everywhere you look, there are inspiring people doing amazing things to try and make it better. When I arrived in Sierra Leone in 2012 to begin my career as a photojournalist, I found an incredible country that bore little resemblance to the negative stereotypes often associated with it.

Ever since then, I have endeavoured to tell stories with nuance and balance and to make a point of documenting the hope and resilience that exist even in situations of extreme hardship. In this talk, I will discuss some of the images and stories of hope that have stayed with me, from the battlefields of Iraq to the townships of Cape Town.
