Venue: National War Museum, Edinburgh Castle
Cost: Entry free with admission to the castle

Explore the life of a modern soldier at the very heart of conflict.

Helmand: Faces of Conflict at the National War Museum, features the photography of Robert Wilson, war artist with Edinburgh's 52 Infantry Brigade. From the rocket pod on an Apache helicopter to an unfinished jigsaw at base camp, Wilson captures the lives of soldiers and civilians with an unflinching sense of intimacy.

The exhibition features a series of photographs taken from Robert Wilson's official book, Helmand. The photographs depict up-close portraits of soldiers fighting in the war in Afghanistan which has killed almost 1,000 coalition troops to date.

From the faces of weary men returning from three weeks on patrol to the dusty landscape of their surroundings, the photographs are both delicate and monumental in detail and heighten the sense of human vulnerability at the very heart of war.
