Order; an authoritative command or instruction.

Last year I travelled to a conflict zone in the Middle East with the purpose of understanding a highly polarizing conflict from the perspective of the indigenous people. I spent a total of 5 weeks in a territory which many consider to be an active war zone.

During this period I witnessed the large scale control of movement imposed by the military on an indigenous people in their indigenous land. The military enforced tight control and strict orders on people wishing to cross a 10 metre wall in order to visit family and pray in sacred temples. This forced order fascinated me; I spent countless days photographing this large scale movement of people under this authoritative command from the military.

I hope the photographs captured reflect this unique perspective to the word order.
