• Training for Iraq by Nick Grigg

During pre-deployment exercises a British soldier evacuates wounded colleagues from a Bulldog tank during a simulated I.E.D attack on the vehicle. Exercises such as this are designed to be as realistic as possible, and pre-deployment training is extensive and gruelling.

Nick Grigg’s photography career began as a military photographer whilst studying fine arts. For the last 4 years Nick turned his focus to documentary projects, and has since covered stories in remote Australian indigenous communities, the Separation Barrier in the West Bank and considerable time as an embed with a British Infantry Regiment on its pre-deployment training and, tour of Iraq.
