Rob Pinney is a documentary photographer based in London. I graduated from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in 2011, and recently completed an MA in the Department of War Studies, King's College London, where I focused on photography and conflict. My current projects all share a common interest in the aftermath(s) of war, displacement and migration.

My work has appeared in a number of national and international publications including The New York Times, The Guardian, The Times, Financial Times, Le Monde Diplomatique and Amnesty International’s Human Rights Defender magazine.

I am currently available for worldwide assignment.
