In the Picture: The Grey Line with Jo Metson Scott

A reflection on war told from the perspectives of American and British soldiers who have spoken out against the invasion of Iraq.


Over the last five years, photojournalist Jo Metson Scott has photographed The Grey Line, a reflection on war told from the perspectives of American and British soldiers who have spoken out against the invasion of Iraq. Their voices have been met with varying consequences, from being outcast to imprisoned, shunned to celebrated.

To mark 10 years since the invasion of Iraq, Metson Scott will be joined by Ben Griffin, a former SAS soldier, to present The Grey Line, in a talk chaired by Victoria Brittain.

Metson Scott’s work has been exhibited around the UK and commissioned by a variety of organisations including The New York Times, The Telegraph, and The Photographers’ Gallery. The Grey Line was the recipient of the inaugural Fire-Cracker Grant and will be published in book form in March 2013.

Former SAS soldier Ben Griffin was discharged from the Army in 2005 after refusing to return to Iraq. Gagged in 2008 for revealing Britain’s involvement in the tortue of detainees he is now an organiser for Veterans for Peace in the UK.

Victoria Brittain has worked as a journalist in Vietnam, Southern Africa, the Horn of Africa, and Palestine for the Guardian, BBC, ITN and various French publications. In the last ten years her work has been mainly concerned with the fallout of the ‘war on terror’. She was co-author on Moazzam Begg’s Guantanamo memoir, Enemy Combatant.
