What leaves me speechless is the strength of people to carry on
On Human Rights Day, ‘Don’t give up the fight’
IPI short “My Voice” highlights experiences of humanitarian photojournalist Giles Duley
VIENNA, Dec 10, 2014 – Award-winning photojournalist Giles Duley’s call to never give up poignantly illustrates the need to keep fighting to uphold fundamental rights despite challenges, the International Press Institute (IPI) said today as it unveiled a short film featuring Duley to mark Human Rights Day.
Duley’s positive and motivational call comes in the IPI film “My Voice”. The short shows life, the world and the impact of conflict and war through the eyes of the photographer, who despite suffering serious injuries in Afghanistan in 2011 still works actively in conflict areas and uses his camera to tell his stories.
His primary focus: the amazing ability of people to persevere.
