    CAMOUFLAGED- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Soldiers- Photogram Series

    Investigating the mental anguish a soldier endures on the battlefield and its effects on his future life. Exploring PTSD in soldiers, representing their struggle during and after a war. Depicting The Glory and Gore of war.
    What makes them choose this path that requires physical and mental endurance on the battlefield and the dilemma of fighting for a cause they might not even believe in? Is it achieving honour and respect that they aspire for? What happens to them when they return to their homes after the war? Do the scars heal or remain with them forever?
    This series of photograms deal with the glorious image of military, a soldier’s thoughts before combat, on the battlefield and after the war is over. It also highlight symptoms and reactions of PTSD that include flashbacks, insomnia, nightmares, guilt, anxiety, anger, depression, drug and alcohol abuse and suicidal thoughts. These photograms were created in the darkroom at
    London College of Communication.
