I Can Only Tell You What My Eyes See: Photographs from the Refugee Crisis Summary

A Scotsman Best Photography Book of 2017 Texts by Filippo Grandi, UN High Comissioner for Refugees, UNHCR, and Robert Del Naja, Massive Attack In October 2015, Giles Duley was commissioned by the UNHCR to document the refugee crisis. Over the next seven months, he was to criss-cross Europe and the Middle East attempting to put a human face to one of the biggest humanitarian emergencies of our time. Duley visited fourteen countries to tell the stories of individuals and families forced to flee their homes. He chronicled the turmoil of Lebanon, the camps of Jordan and Iraq, hellish scenes on the beaches of Lesvos and the refugees arrival in Germany. Bringing together over 150 original photographs, this book captures how even in the midst of such horror and tragedy there is humour, the unexpected and, above all, humanity.

I Can Only Tell You What My Eyes See: Photographs from the Refugee Crisis Reviews

'What is different [about photographers] is ... the emotional connection they make. That is what I love about Giles's photography. Looking at his images, we can feel what he feels. It's clear that he connects deeply to the human condition of people from all over the world.' - Angelina Jolie; 'It is not pity Duley feels, but unity...Duley prefers to call himself a storyteller than a photographer. His camera is a tool to achieve global reach rather than show off technical brilliance.' - The Times; 'What an impressive man Giles Duley is, and his photographs are incredible' - Louise Minchin, BBC Breakfast; `The book should serve as a wakeup call for all authorities who have the power to alter the situation but continue to affirm their penchant for war.' Middle East Monitor; `A remarkable collection of photo stories that provide a moving depiction and bring to life the human and frequently harrowing situations of refugees that are normally shielded from view behind largely hostile media coverage... a moving portrayal of the plight and humanity of refugees.' The Muslim World Book Review
