We are only 18

We are both only 18, we have never been to Afghanistan and we have never been or seen War, but through our eyes we will show you what we see. We plan to take you on a journey through our eyes, our lives and show you how the effects of our jobs and what we do changes us from the young men you see today.

The pictures of us were taken a few weeks before we deploy, we will take another picture of us after our first 3 months at war and then finally after 6 months at war. We hope you appreciate our journey and the changes that you see, we are just young men and we are what Project Afghan is all about, you will see 6 Months At War Through Our Eyes.

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.
