British b.1968



Studying Geography at England's Durham University nurtured Piers' keen interest in geopolitical issues and world affairs, and it was here that he first became interested in writing and photography. After several years in social work Piers returned to study Photojournalism at the London College of Printing where he earned a distinction, and joined the Panos photo agency.



Since then he has lived for 14 years outside the UK, in Pakistan, Nepal, Burma and Kenya and worked exclusively as a photojournalist for major publications such as TIME Magazine, The New York Times, Stern Magazine and many others as well as NGOs and UN agencies.



He has exhibited his work in Holland, Poland, Burma and Pakistan and currently lives in Nairobi with his wife and three children.
