Nick Danziger

Nick Danziger hails from London but grew up in Monaco.  Mr Danziger’s initial ambition was to be an artist and he was educated at The Chelsea School of Art, where he read Fine Art.  But when he was awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Fellowship, he used it to follow ancient trade routes, travelling on foot or by traditional local transport from Turkey to China, documenting his adventures in diaries. The diaries and photographs formed his first book, the best-selling Danziger’s Travels and a second book, Danziger’s Adventures. He subsequently published Danziger’s Britain and The British.

He soon become one of the world’s most famous photographers and photojournalists.  In 2004, he won the World Press Photo of the Year for his ‘mirror’ image of Prime Minister Tony Blair and President George W. Bush.  His photographs have appeared in newspapers and magazines worldwide (including the cover photographs of Time, The Times and The Economist), toured museums and galleries internationally, and are held in numerous national museum collections including the National Portrait Gallery in London.  His documentary work is also award-winning, including achieving the prestigious Prix Italia for the Best Television Documentary.  He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, a recipient of the Royal Geographical Society’s Ness Award and Journalist of The Year of the Royal Television Society.
