Stephen Dupont

Award-winning photographer Stephen Dupont was born in Sydney, Australia in 1967. Since beginning his photographic career in 1989, he has produced photo essays from dozens of countries, including some of the world’s most dangerous regions: Afghanistan, Angola, Burma, Burundi, Cambodia, India, Israel, Iraq, Rwanda, Somalia, and Zaire.
 
Dupont’s reportage has been featured in The New Yorker, Newsweek, GQ, French and German GEO, Le Figaro, Liberation, The Sunday Times Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, Stern, Time, The Financial Review Magazine and Vanity Fair, and has earned him photography’s most prestigious prizes, including a Robert Capa Gold Medal citation from the Overseas Press Club of America, a Bayeaux War Correspondent’s Prize and first places in the World Press Photo, Pictures of the Year International and the Australian Walkleys.
 
Having exhibited his work in London, Paris, New York, Sydney, Canberra, Tokyo, Shanghai, and at Perpignan’s Visa Pour L’Image Festival, in 1999 Dupont was a co-founding member of the first festival of photojournalism in Australia: REPORTAGE - A Celebration of Australian Photojournalism.
 
He is also the author of several books, STEAM – India’s Last Steam Trains and FIGHT - a global retrospective on traditional wrestling.
 
A documentary filmmaker as well as a photographer, Dupont’s first film, in 2001, concerned a solo trek across Afghanistan’s Hindu Kush Mountains by horse and foot. In 2005, his footage of US soldiers burning the bodies of dead Taliban sparked international outrage, a criminal investigation, and changes to US military policy. This film work earned him a finalist spot at the 2006 Rory Peck Sony Impact Awards. His 2006 report on heroin use in Afghanistan, “The Brothers of Kabul” made with writer Jacques Menasche, was a finalist for the Rory Peck Award for Features and earned them an Australian Walkley Award for Best News and Television Reporting.
 
His hand made artist books are in the Collections of the National Library of Australia, Berlin National Art Library, Stanford University California, Boston Athenaeum and Minneapolis Institute of Art, to name just a few.
 
Stephen Dupont’s photographs are archived in many Australian Institutions and galleries and at Contact Press Images in New York City. His films are distributed through Journeyman Pictures in London, UK. Editioned Artist Books are available from BOOKLYN, New York City. Dupont’s work can be seen at www.stephendupont.com, www.contactpressimages.com and www.booklyn.org
