About Stephen Dupont

Stephen Dupont was born in 1967 in Sydney, Australia. He began his photographic career working for Reuters in Africa. He has since covered conflicts throughout the world, including Kashmir, Indonesia, East Timor, Rwanda, the Middle East, Afghanistan, and Iraq. He is the recipient of several World Press Photo Foundation awards, and the author of "Steam: India's Last Steam Trains" (Dewi Lewis Publishing, 1999) and "Fight," a four-continent project on wrestlers from around the world (Marval 2003). Dupont's work -- including his war photography, his large-size portraits of gang members in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, and his coverage of the devistating 2004 tsunami in Banda Aceh, Indonesia -- has been widely exhibited.


His images of American soldiers burning the bodies of dead Taliban in Afghanistan earned him a rare Robert Capa Gold Medal Award citation from the Overseas Press Club of America in 2005.

He is the recipient of the 2007 W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography for his long-term documentary project on the escalating drug crisis in Afghanistan. He joined Contact Press Images in 1997 and is based in Sydney, Australia.
