A camera and a sense of adventure have taken freelance photojournalist Andrew Quilty from Sydney to the global stage. He is now based in Afghanistan and his coverage of the country’s recovery from war has featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time and last year won him the Gold Walkley.
This very special Edit event was run in partnership with the Walkley Foundation’s Storyology festival and with support from Nikon. Andrew discussed his work as a freelancer in Afghanistan and how the tools of the trade have changed with social media.
The Edit events are open to all early-career journalists, as well as journalism students. This forum was hosted by ABC reporter Stephanie Anderson.
