For a number of years I photographed the conferences and events of The United Nations Association in the U.K. This included covering high profile events as the only official photographer at some incredible locations around London.
Ban Ki-Moon at Central Hall Westminster
UNA-UK hosted H.E. Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary-General. The event, held at London’s Central Hall Westminster – where the first UN Secretary-General was elected 70 years ago, was held in association with Chatham House and attended by over 2000 people.
The United Nations at 70 event at the Guidhall, London.
Over 700 people came to London’s prestigious Guildhall for the UK commemoration of the UN’s 70th anniversary, hosted by UNA-UK in association with the City of London Corporation and with generous support from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, Gro Harlem Brundtland and Hina Jilani were the main speakers and Amal Clooney was in attendance.
Kofi Annan at Kings College London
The Conflict, Security and Development Research Group at the Department of War Studies co-hosted former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in an exclusive UN Forum preview event. The event was held jointly with the Kofi Annan Foundation and UNA-UK. In conversation with Sir Jeremy Greenstock, Chairman of UNA-UK, and in response to questions from the audience, Kofi Annan discussed the role of the UN in the 21st Century, a theme of his new book ‘We the Peoples’, a collection of his major speeches as Secretary-General.
