Veterans by Veterans
An online exhibition
This is our online exhibition space in which we will display some of our veterans' creative responses to the question:
"How should we represent veterans in the media?"
Artwork is showcased below from veterans who have got in touch during our pilot study, and in the future artwork produced through this project will also be showcased here.
Images by Stuart Griffiths
Bio: Stuart began using photography as a young soldier whilst serving in Northern Ireland during the 1980s and 90s. 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. His work is represented in major public and private collections, including the Imperial War Museum, The Archive of Modern Conflict & National Media Museum.
Intro: We are privileged to be able to showcase below some of Stuart's images surrounding the theme "Veteran". Most were used in a solo show of Stuart's work which was titled 'Closer' and was the winning portfolio at the Brighton Photo Fringe OPEN 2010. It explores Griffiths' personal feelings towards war and conflict, and responds to the unseen consequences of the ongoing campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.
