Photographs by the renowned photographer Robert Wilson when he revisited Afghanistan as an official war artist, this time to record the British troops' final tour of duty.

The exhibition offers a unique perspective on a much documented conflict, with many never-before recorded sights both on an off base.  These photographs allow a rare insight into the process of ending war, including the packing up and disposal of equipment.

In a year of retrospective imagery surrounding the centenery of the First World War, these images provide a fresh perspective on the photography of conflict.

Helmand Return is created by Robert Wilson, curated by Catherine Collins and Rhiannon Adam, and loaned by Gallery One and a Half.
