Toy soldiers in Western Sahara

Photographer Simon Brann Thorpe's pictures from the Western Sahara explore a conflict that has been forgotten, yet has lasted for 40 years, with no sign of a resolution.

Although under the de facto administrative control of Morocco, the status and sovereignty of Western Sahara remains unresolved, with the Algerian-backed Polisario Front in exile. Here Brann Thorpe talks about the work he produced in collaboration with a military commander.
