E is for EOD


E is for EOD – 14″x11″ Graphite on Bristol

Developing my ideas on my alphabet book further still over the last few weeks has lead me to build it more around the singular imagery like above. In the end it feels the best approach and works more to my strengths.

Explosives Ordinance Disposal teams are a vital part of contemporary war. On the hook to destroy or disable any found Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s) and weapons caches, and in some cases even doing the patrols themselves.

It takes a special type of individual to do the work these soldiers, sailors and airmen and without them the area of operations would be a much more lethal place to both our own service members and the civilians within them. Their efforts save lives by putting their own on the line. And even with the advent of robotic hands and helpers, technology can and regularly does break down, leaving a technician only one choice in some cases, hunker down, stare into the face of death itself and clip the wires that make him tick.
