Sometimes we ease you into a Monday morning but not this week dear readers because Giles Duley’s new series is an urgent, heart-stopping reminder that struggling with the commute is pretty small fry. He went with Save The Children to visit the Syrian refugees in Zaatari, Jordan, and the resulting portraits are extraordinarily powerful.
Giles’ brilliance lies in his unerring ability to focus on the person whatever context he is working in. In that way paradoxically his work is so much more powerful; he underlines that whatever socio-political conflicts rage around them, the victims are men, women and children who wanted nothing less than to be thrusted into the maelstrom.
