Graham Uden is a British-born Hong Kong based photographer-videographer. He graduated from Ravensbourne College of Art & Design, London, in 1985 with a Degree in Graphic Design / Visual Communications. For the next 7 years he lived and worked in London, New York, Sydney and Singapore, combining photography with design.
On arrival in Hong Kong from New York in 1992, he set to work photographing the faces and scenes of Asia. This has involved being roughed up by ex-President Clinton’s secret service bodyguards in HK, being held up by AK-47 toting ex-Khmer Rouge soldiers in Cambodia, crawling across minefields in Laos, squatting 300 metres from Taleban frontline trenches in the 2001 Afghanistan War and narrowly missing suicide bombs in Baghdad during 2003.
He currently specialises in editorial features, reportage, travel, corporate and commercial photography in the Asia region. His editorial work has appeared in publications world-wide including Conde Nast Traveler, Elle, GEO Traveller, Marie Claire, Newsweek, The NY Times, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, The Times Magazine, Travel & Leisure, Time, Vanity Fair, Vogue and Wallpaper
