KIERAN DOHERTY – WORLD PRESS PHOTO AWARD 2015
Kieran Doherty is a freelance photographer based in England. In 1993, he became a stringer for the Reuters News Picture Service before being offered a staff position based in London in 2000. He travelled extensively, covering spot news stories in northern Ireland, Israel, Yemen, the immediate aftermath of the 2003 Iraq war and the 2004 Asian tsunami to various Olympic Games, Fifa World Cups, Wimbledon Championships and everything else in between. His work has been awarded on numerous occasions and now resides in several permanent art collections.
In 2008 Kieran resigned from his staff position to concentrate on personal long-term projects, the first of which involved spending 18 months chronicling the repatriations of fallen British service men and women through the small English town of Wootton Bassett. Throughout his work he continues to explore the theme of human resilience. Kieran’s work has exhibited in London, Barcelona, Perpignan and New York.
