Paul Grover

The Telegraph/Sunday Telegraph

Paul Grover's photograph from Ukraine captures the human cost of war at its most visceral, showing the bereaved family of a young civilian woman killed by bombing. To operate in this environment a photographer needs bravery, tenacity, compassion and the ability to remain calm. In addition to the humour of the photograph capturing young Prince Louis on the Buckingham Palace balcony, Paul's versatility is underlined by the fun he captures in the face and pose of Paralympic swimmer Alice Tai. Our industry needs more photojournalists like Paul. We should champion their work and recognise their brilliance.
