Giles DuleyPhotographerGiles was a photographer who, some years ago, tired of celebrity photoshoots and the attendant egos and tantrums that often accompanied them, he flung his camera on the photoshoot bed and it bounced out the window into the streets of Soho. At that point he decided to change course and dedicated himself to using his camera to "tell unheard stories of those caught in conflict and economic hardship around the world". His work took him to Sudan, Angola, Ukraine and Bangladesh among other places. Early last year, on assignment in Afghanistan, Giles stepped on a landmine. Though he became the story, the real story is his photographs.About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
