If a picture is worth a thousand words, Tom Stoddart’s photographic archive is the Encyclopedia Britannica. He has shot some of the most iconic photographs of the last forty years from the fall of the Berlin wall, the election of Nelson Mandela and more recently, he documented Prime Minister David Cameron’s daily life at 10 Downing Street.
In 2003, his pictures of British Royal Marines in combat, during hostilities in Iraq, was awarded the Larry Burrows Award for Exceptional War Photography. A year later his book iWITNESS was honoured as the best photography book published in the USA.
In the summer of 2012, Perspectives, an outdoor retrospective exhibition in collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross was viewed by 225,000 visitors at London’s South Bank.
Stoddart is now established as one of the worlds most respected photojournalists and continues to produce powerful photo-essays on the serious world issues of our time.
