Shattering Stereotypes: The Real Faces of the Ministry of Defence

In the hushed corridors of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), something extraordinary unfolded – a project that I had the privilege of leading, armed with my camera and a vision. It was about capturing the essence of women who are breaking new ground in data and tech within the MoD.

I was fortunate enough to meet Caroline Bellamy, Chief Data Officer at the MoD, who had experienced first-hand the impact of my photography during the Women in Data awards. Inspired by her experiences, Caroline saw an opportunity to challenge the status quo within the MoD, to shine a light on the remarkable women in data and tech, and to redefine the stereotype-riddled narrative that often surrounds them.
