Created in Conflict - the photographs of Adam Dobby

From 12th - 22nd October 2021 we will be hosting Created in Conflict - the photographs of Adam Dobby. 

Adam Dobby a former member of the SAS, put down a rifle and picked up a camera: these haunting images are the result. His perspective on war, first as a soldier then as a photographer, has enabled him to tell visual stories in a unique way. He homes in on expressions and faces, and we are able to see into the experience of victims, conscripts, warlords and others caught up in the whirlwind of history.
At a time when we consume thousands of images daily, these pictures arrest the eye. They are documents not only of suffering, but of the strange beauty found in the war-scapes of Africa and the Middle East. They speak of the complexity of conflict, and the connections human beings can make through a single look or gesture.

A portion of all sales from Adam's art will go to support two charities The SAS Regimental Association, the only official organisation that represents the Special Air Service Regiment  & INARA that provides life-altering medical care for children from conflict areas who have catastrophic injuries or illnesses and are unable to access treatment due to war.  
Limited edition prints are personally proofed, signed and sequentially numbered, showing both the print number and the total edition size. Different sizes can be ordered.
