About

Voices of the South Atlantic examines issues of war and its consequences. Rooted in the 1982 Falklands/Malvinas War, it includes the voices of people who fought on both sides, as well as civilians who were directly affected by it. Colour photographs of landscapes of the Falkland Islands, and black and white seascapes of the South Atlantic challenge the notion of the heroic and deconstructs the idea of national pride. The focus of the project is not about who is right or wrong — justice or injustice. It is about extreme human experiences under the harshest of conditions and its resultant effects on the body and mind of the persons in focus. Its premise is that fear and loss are universal, and that pain and trauma affect both the losers and the winners.
