HALO Trust Portraits
In 2008 I was assigned to photograph the work and achievements of the HALO Trust as part of their commemoration of 20 years of clearing mines. HALO is a humanitarian mine-clearance charity, based in Scotland. When I took on this commission it was working in nine countries and regions around the world. These included Abkhazia, Afghanistan, Angola, Cambodia, Kosovo, Mozambique, Nagorno Karabakh, Somaliland and Sri Lanka. These photographs include portraits of de-miners and show some of the casualties of mines. They were made on a large-format Ebony 45s camera. Locations are Afghanistan, Angola, Kosovo, Mozambique and Somaliland.
