After becoming disillusioned with the celebrity scene, Giles Duley turned his back on rock and fashion photography and turned his skill towards capturing the plight of those affected by war and poverty. However, while working in Afghanistan in 2011, Giles' life changed forever when he stood on a landmine. He lost both his lower legs and his left arm. He talks to Ricky about his life and his latest collection of refugee photographs, 'I Can Only Tell You What My Eyes See'.
