Getty Images Gallery welcomes you to our second photographer talk as leading photographers discuss their work and the photography industry in light of our latest exhibitions.
Against the eclectic backdrop of Jewels of the Archive, award-winning photographer Tom Stoddart discusses his work with Matthew Butson, Vice President, Getty Images Archive.
Tom Stoddart began his photographic career on a local newspaper in his native North East of England. In 1978 he moved to London and began working freelance for publications such as the Sunday Times and Time Magazine.
During a long and varied career he has witnessed such international events as the war in Lebanon, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the election of President Nelson Mandela, the bloody siege of Sarajevo and the wars against Saddam Hussein in Iraq.
Now established as one of the world’s most respected photojournalists, Stoddart is represented by, and works closely with Getty Images, to produce powerful photo-essays on the serious world issues of our time.
