When Stephen Constantine reflects on a career that has so far taken him from London to Sudan via India, Nepal, North Korea and Rwanda among 80 other countries, he does so with an air of understatement.

His journey is a remarkable, complex one that he describes as a privilege. Yet the 57-year-old plays much of it down, almost surprised that there can be so much interest in his nomadic existence.
