British b.1965



Graduating from Falmouth School of Art, England, in 1987, Dean specialised in sculpture and then photography.



In 1990, he began documenting the plight of the Karenni people and their decades-long resistance to successive Burmese dictatorships. For this investigation, Dean was the recipient of the 1998 European Publishers' Award for Photography, which resulted in the publication of the book Karenni, the Forgotten War of a Nation Besieged (Dewi Lewis Publishing, Umschau/Braus, Editions Hazan, Lunwerg Editores, Peliti Associati), and was exhibited in Kyoto, Tokyo, Rome, Newcastle and Milan.



He has received grants from Northern Arts and Arts Council England North East in support of his more than twenty-year long documentation of issues concerning Burma and its peoples.
