STEPHEN GERARD KELLY
A Dublin-born Irish native, Stephen Gerard Kelly is a professional photographer whose reputable clients span across the photojournalist, non-profit and corporate worlds. Stephen's ultimate passion lies in social justice and human rights where he uses powerful photography and video/film to deepen our understanding of issues facing vulnerable communities. Some of his best known work focuses on post-nomadic communities in urban environments and people displaced by conflict. By building trust over extended periods of time through an ethos rooted in respect and empathy, Stephen gains unique access to some of the world's most marginalized communities.
Coupled with an MSc in Development Studies, he is naturally drawn towards fully understanding the real narrative at a deeper level. Stephen's projects range from working with minority groups including Irish Travelling People (or Travellers/Travelers) to photographing human migration and its related challenges in Africa, the Middle East and Europe, to promoting positive change in historically marginalized groups, parts and sectors of society to documenting conflicts both locally and internationally.
In addition to being a UNICEF photographer and working with the world's largest international NGOs, Stephen also works independently with the Guardian, the Times, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, the New York Daily News, the Daily Telegraph, the Australian, the Daily Mail and the Weekly Standard. His work has also appeared in Vogue, Forbes, MSN, Dagbladet (Norway), TVC (Russia), the Courier Mail, the Advertiser, the Irish Evening Herald, the Irish Independent, L'Orient du Jour and Lebanon's Daily Star, among others. Stephen works with photo agencies Redux, Polaris Images and ZUMA Press, now the world's largest independent press agency and wire service.
