My Project Private is my experience of being a part-time Soldier and Student. Two different worlds that have left me with many decisions and experience’s, with each day of me leaning towards the army life but with the student life grabbing me saying don’t do it. Each Image in this series is a re-enactment of what happened in my alpha one training in Exeter while the others is the experience I have with my Mum and friends, not having a father figure in my life all 22 of my mates took his place instead, they are the reason I am who I am today, and will keep on pushing me till I reach my goals. The project is very different and very demanding and emotional at times but that’s the life of a private.
The aim of my work is to show the world what it’s really like being a part-time soldier and the struggles you have being a civilian and soldier because you literally become Jekyll and Hyde.
