Carol Allen-Storey is an award-winning photojournalist specialising in chronicling complex humanitarian and social issues. Her imagery illuminating people’s dignity and quest for survival reflects the unique trust and respect she engenders with her subjects.

“My images are intimate, about issues and citizens I deeply care about. I believe photographs may not be capable of doing the moral work for us, but they can trigger the process of social consciousness.”

Storey’s work has been exhibited and published extensively. Installations of her photography appear in corporate HQs and commercial premises. In October 2009 she was appointed a UNICEF ambassador for photography. Her recent prize money for winning gold in the Act of Kindness Award was donated to a small AIDS charity in Uganda because she believes it was morally responsible to donate the money back to those most in need.

In 2000 Carol graduated from Central St. Martins, Master Photography programme with distinction. A native New Yorker, Storey resides in London.
