Aubrey Wade uses documentary photography to explore complex social issues, seeking visual approaches to storytelling that help audiences connect with his subjects and their experiences. Aubrey works internationally on long-term documentary projects, as well as on assignment for leading publications and NGOs. His work has been published by CNN international, the Guardian, die Zeit, Sunday Times magazine, mare (Germany), "D" La Republicca Della Donne, Newsweek, Der Spiegel, Foto8, Smithsonian, the Observer, and the Telegraph magazine, amongst many others.
He developed his most recent project, the on-going No Stranger Place series, in partnership with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Through new blended family portraits, the project shares stories of refugees and locals living together in Germany, Sweden, Austria and the UK. It has been widely published and exhibited in St Petersburg's Hermitage Museum, the Westbahnhof train station in Vienna, through which hundreds of thousands of refugees passed on their journey into Europe in 2015 / 2016, and at the central train station (Hauptbahhof) in Berlin, reaching a public audience of more than one million people.
Aubrey holds degrees in Social Anthropology from Sussex University and in Photography from the University of the Arts London. He is represented by Panos Pictures.
