This Funzing Experience:

Rick Findler is an award-winning photojournalist who has covered some of the most dangerous and violent conflicts on the planet. He has documented the Libyan civil war, al-Shabaab terrorists in Somalia and the rise and fall of ISIS across Syria and northern Iraq. But out of all of the countries he has been to, none are more prevalent in today's news than Syria - a country that Rick has revisited on a number of occasions since his first project in 2012.

Rick's heart-pounding talk takes you right to the front lines. Come and listen as he talks about being smuggled across the closed borders of Syria in the dead of night, near misses from a Syrian regime sniper, and learn what it is really like to work in one of the most dangerous countries in the world.

Rick is a freelance photojournalist based in south-west London. A keen interest in world events has taken him to document many of the most dangerous stories in recent history.
