The images within my ongoing project Waves consist of collected photographs from those who served on board HMS Campbeltown between 2001-05. The images were sourced through facebook, email and data transferring sites by asking people I served with to send images from their Naval travels for a photographic project. The images were taken between the shores of the United Kingdom en-route through the Mediterranean on training exercises with NATO to the Middle East for operational duties. The territory of these images and those within them play on the security and identity of both a visible and invisible threat. In a Europe where safety and borders are increasingly being questioned and tested, these images are of military personnel on their operational duties; in their own Europe carrying out their daily tasks.
