Stephen Gerard Kelly
Stephen Gerard Kelly has lived and traveled in over 50 countries working in Documentary Photography, Conflict Research and Humanitarian Management. Including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, South Sudan, Yemen, Lebanon, Cuba, Haiti, Italy, Laos, Ireland and the United States, he often works with under-represented, misunderstood and marginalized groups. Stephen's ethos is rooted in powerful photography and videography around people, context and motivations, all compassionately observed, meticulously researched and thoroughly understood. He uses photography and videography to deepen our understanding of socioeconomic, environmental and political issues facing vulnerable individuals and communities on the fringes of an increasingly globalized world.
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.
Stephen's has worked with the Guardian, the New York Daily News, the Daily Telegraph, the Irish Evening Herald, the Irish Independent, the Courier Mail, the Advertiser, Polaris Images, ZUMA Press as well as other international media outlets.
