In 2013, Simon Longworth worked as an army photographer for the 1 Mechanised Brigade during a 6 month tour of Afghanistan.
Brought up in Winterton, North Lincolnshire and now living in Wiltshire, Simon gave up his role as a helicopter pilot to take up the challenge of working alongside British troops in the Helmand Province as one of the army's 38 trained Army photographers, documenting modern military life from the dramatic to the mundane.
As well as his day-to-day work producing images for media, PR and historical purposes, he also photographed numerous portraits of local life and people, alongside military personnel, often on request of family members and loved ones who contacted him via social media.
Photographs in the exhibition include formal portraits, soldiers cooking chips in camp, canine colleagues and groups of local children, among many others.
