Nick Danziger

Nick Danziger is probably one of the most widely traveled and unique photo-journalists at work in the world today. Born 1958 in London to an American father and English mother, he went to school in Switzerland but by the age of 13 was already traveling.

Following an MA at Chelsea art school he held one-man shows in London and New York whilst working as a visiting lecturer. However his desire to travel was overwhelming and in 1982 he was awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Fellowship, using it to travel the ancient trade route from Turkey to China, through Iran, Afganistan and Pakistan. This he did on foot or in traditional local transport, documenting his trip in diaries as it unfolded. His first book, ‘ Danziger’ s Travels’ was based on these explorations and became an instant bestseller.

The documentary film ‘ War Lives and Videotape, which was made in Afganistan in 1991, focused on the lives of the children abandoned in the Marastoon mental asylum in Kabul. It was the first film Danziger made and following its showing as part of the BBC’ s video diaries series, won the Prix Italia for best television documentary series. This was succeeded by the 1992 book, ‘Danziger’s Adventures: From Miami to Kabul’ . travels from the glitterati of Palm Beach to a massacre of Kurdish refugees, from the Ayatollah Khomeini’s funeral to Kabul under rocket fire (editorial review).... read more
