Behind the Mask

Artist Biography

Adam Dobby former 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 Ukraine, 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."
