Giles Clarke is a photojournalist focusing on capturing the human face of current and post-conflict issues throughout the world. Since 2017, Clarke has been working closely with UN/OCHA on awareness campaigns in war-torn Yemen and the Sahel region of central Africa.
Clarke began his film and photography career in West Berlin as a 16mm camera assistant at the height of the Cold War during the mid-1980s before switching to a successful professional black-and-white photographic printer career in London and New York. In 1997, Clarke worked in the Richard Avedon darkroom in New York on some now-iconic fashion campaigns. From 1998 to 2008, Clarke moved to Los Angeles, where he worked with Channel 4 (UK) on film-based content stories and directed advertising web-based segments for clients such as Budweiser, Hummer, and Cadillac.
