In 1982, the Falkland Islands became the scene of an intense 74 day war by land, air, and sea, between Argentina and Great Britain which ended in the deaths of 649 Argentine military personnel, 255 British military personnel, and 3 Falkland Islanders during the hostilities.

Traces of War photographically documents war veterans and members of the Falklands community today, but is primarily focused on documenting places that still hold the scars of wartime in the Falkland Islands. Due to the untamed and harsh landscape of the Falklands, many artefacts of war still remain in situ, from the thousands of landmines that are currently being cleared, crash sites of aircraft that were hit during battle, and grave sites of fallen Argentinian soldiers.

This long term project will encompass the verbal accounts of direct and indirect participants of the war and the visual representation of the aftermath of the conflict on the Falkland Islands. The work coincides with the 35th anniversary of the Falklands war to help remind people of the sheer devastation of war, not only to the landscape but to the people directly and indirectly involved.
