My introduction to the world of landmines started in 1990 when I began working as the Land Mine Awareness Programme's (LMAP) Media Coordinator in Site II refugee camp, located on the Thai/Cambodian border. I led a team of Thai and Cambodian locals to set up the world's second landmine awareness programme, after Afghanistan, funded by the International Rescue Committee (IRC).

Over the next 10 years I worked in various capacities landmine awareness for several Aid Agencies & UN Departments based in such mined countries as Cambodia, Angola, Kosovo, Laos and Mozambique.

I have accumulated an unique archive of images, materials and writings that document the early years of Mine Action (starting in 1989) up till the early 2000s. (To read information and view images on Mine Action and Mine Risk Education - click one of the link boxes above.
