Most recently Ivor’s work has focused on the fight to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria, with a particular focus on the battle for Mosul.

Working exclusively for the The New York Times, he has spent months on the ground reporting in both words and pictures to produce the series 'The Battle For Mosul'.

Based in the region since 2009, Ivor documented the Arab Spring uprisings in Egypt and Libya, working simultaneously on editorial assignments and his own long-term projects.


Travelling to more than 10 countries between 2012 and 2015 he documented the Syrian refugee crisis in the region as well as Europe, working in close collaboration with UNHCR to produce the body of work, ‘Seeking Shelter’.

‘Dreams of a Homeland’ is the result of extended periods of time spent in northern Iraq and Syria with the Kurdish people striving for recognition in the region.

With a particular interest in the aftermath of war and its humanitarian consequences, his early projects focused on stories of displaced people throughout the Balkans and Caucasus and culminated in the form of ‘Returning Home’.

Ivor’s work has been recognised through a number of prestigious awards including POYI, Foam Talent, The Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize and The Ian Parry Scholarship.

His pictures have been exhibited widely at institutions such as The Getty Gallery, London, Foam Gallery, Amsterdam and The National Portrait Gallery, London.

He is represented by Panos Pictures in London and holds a degree in documentary photography from the University of Wales Newport.
