Objectifs, the leading centre for photography and film in Singapore, invites Gary Knight, a critically acclaimed veteran documentary photographer, to give a public lecture and conduct a masterclass. This will be his second visit this year. He and Ron Haviv gave a talk at Objectifs in October.

Since then, he has worked as a freelance photojournalist for many leading print media companies such as Newsweek, Time, The Sunday Times, The New York Times, Paris Match, Stern and National Geographic, covering various topics like global conflicts, human rights and the impact of war on civilians in Cambodia, Burma, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, Congo and Israel-Palestine. Evidence - War Crimes in Kosovo was published in 2002. Knight received an Amnesty International UK Media Award, photojournalism category, for his work on War crimes in Kosovo for Newsweek International.

His work has been exhibited worldwide and collected by several museums and private collectors. His handcrafted prints are available for order here.
He is a man who constantly strives for more. In 2005, he founded Angkor Photo Festival in Cambodia. Since 2008, he has worked on documentary and anthropological storytelling projects.
