Stuart Griffiths joined the British army in 1988, aged 16. While serving in Northern Ireland armed with an disposable camera he began to capture everyday moments in his fellow soldiers’ lives.

Pigs’ Disco – named for the monthly party at the barracks where locals girls would be invited for drinks, dancing and sex – is a visceral journey into the heart of the British army during the maelstrom of acid, raves and violence that occupied the soldier’s young lives against the backdrop of the Troubles.

Stuart Griffiths is an award winning and diverse photographer having worked in editorial photography for newspapers and magazines on a various commissions throughout the world.
