Sue Black, OBE, FRSE

He is a man of exceptional talent, integrity and singular spirit.  He personifies the humanity of image reporting and I am in no doubt that his work will serve as an everlasting monument to the incongruous dichotomy of desperation and salvation that is the very soul of mass disaster and genocide investigations…. I have such complete and total confidence in the decency and dignity of this man that I would never hesitate to give him access to the most sensitive areas in which we work. Whilst some of his images must by necessity be gruesome and depressive, so many others are so poignantly touching and beautiful that he manages to achieve that ethereal balance between portraying the worst of human nature alongside our indomitable spirit of hope.
