As part of the launch of the Imperial War Museum's new First World War Galleries, this exhibition from British artist Mark Neville is a response to the war in Afghanistan. The work was commissioned by the IWM's Art Commissions Committee and arts association Firstsite Colchester in 2010, and the artist spent two months with an air assault brigade in Helmland Province to get a thorough insight into the impact of conflict. The photographs and films are a moving and direct portrayal of young British soldiers, and Afghan children growing up in the midst of the violence.
