Stuart began using photography as a young soldier whilst serving in Northern Ireland during the 1980’s and 90’s. In 1997 he graduated from the University of Brighton with a Honours Degree in Editorial Photography. His photographs are mainly focused on self directed projects focusing on autobiographical experiences.
A documentary about Griffith’s life and work “Isolation” (Institute for Eyes) premiered at the 2009 Edinburgh Film Festival and toured at Picture House Cinemas. In 2010 Griffiths won a bursary from the National Media Photography Award and was winner of the OPEN 2010 Brighton Photo Fringe Award. His first solo show “Closer” explores Griffiths personal feelings towards war and conflict, and respond to the unseen consequences of the ongoing campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.
