I am going to explore the theme of people at work.  I want to focus on people's duty in their work.  When first given the question, I began thinking about workers on farms juxtaposed by modern cities and how they have been common focal points.  Then I fell on the idea of trenches. This has influenced me to think about soldiers and soldiers at work. I am captivated by the images of soldiers and the theme of duty captured in war photography. I have researched into photos which show contrasts in modern soldiers and those framed in history. I want to explore the contrast of modern soldiers compared to historic battle environments, or wartime soldiers brought into the future through contemporary artistic styles. I aim to show the link between soldiers at work and the change in modern working environments seen nowadays.
