During a tour of duty with Canadian Forces Operation CALUMET, Allen Ball captured 2000 photographic images that document the working lives of Canadians serving at El Gorah, Northern Sinai. From this vast collection, 12 paintings were created and depict the visible and invisible traces that remain on the surface of the militarized landscape of the Multinational Forces and Observers base.
