Jus in bello
The four principles of Jus in bello are; Necessity, Distinction, Proportionality and Limitation. They are concerned with the amount of force used, discrimination between target and non-target, knowing the expected outcomes of a campaign and the types of weapons that may be used. These criteria are used to determine justice during war. The objects in this series are items used by the pest control industry. With a rapidly increasing middle class, a growing population, global warming and an increasing intolerance toward any uninvited life form, the pest control industry has never been more relevant. The objects in the photographs are all around us, often in plain sight, yet they seem almost invisible. Most are small or camouflaged, some only come out at night, but they are all part of the enormous array of technical devices used by the pest controller on behalf of us all.
