Project Afghan Introduction

Project Afghan, is a project born from the ideas that many other photographers around the world take part in (365 projects), my idea is to capture one image a day for the duration of my forthcoming 6 month tour in Afghanistan (starting next year 2012).

Along with each daily image, i will write a small diary of why i captured the image and a small description of what was going on at the time and i will publish what i wrote with each photo daily (hopefully).

I’m hoping that the series of images over a 6 month period as seen through my eyes will allow you all a small glimpse of my life and the realities of the war in Afghanistan.

Im hoping that the final product of 6 months worth of images, is to exhibit all or some of these images on my return from Afghanistan 2012.

I hope you will all join and follow my forthcoming project and please share with your friends to follow my journey.


About robgrimesphotography

Experienced and enthusiastic, I have a real passion for photography that I have gained over the years and that shines through in my pictures and my portfolio. I specialise in capturing those spontaneous moments that we otherwise could lose, either at your wedding or on a relaxed family shoot of your choice. I am always happy to talk about photography, so if you think I might be the right person to take your photographs then give me a ring to discuss your pictures, they are yours after all. Also a full time serving soldier in the Infantry in the British Army, but soon to be leaving the forces after Project Afghan finishes.

  4. A fantastic project you have ahead of you, not only with your photography, but your time as a soldier there. There have been many programs on the tv, many articles covering the Afghanistan war but I feel you really represent the feet on the ground as much if not more than anyone else. I look forward to seeing the pictures you take and really getting a sense of life out there for our soldiers through your words. It would be better if none of you had to go there, but you are, so me and my family will be following you in our thoughts and hoping for you to kick some Taliban ass out there!
