During these excursions, I have seen battle. And I have seen the aftermath. When shooting was over - but death was not. Cease-fire or even liberation don’t necessarily mean that you are safe. In fact, this is - in most conflicts - the most dangerous phase for human beings. A phase that can stretch over decades. Mines and IEDs are the most inhuman, most malicious and most coward means of warfare, and I cannot express in words how much I despise and loathe them.
So when the Geneva International Center for Humanitarian Demining
asked whether I’d be interested in supporting their media awareness by contributing a photographic documentary, I didn’t even have to think. Of course I would! GICHD works towards keeping communities safe from the risks stemming from explosive ordnance, and they support partners around the world to save lives and restore livelihoods. I am very proud to support their mission for Humanitarian Demining - also in future.
