Photo Gallery: Hereford's Pete Masters in Kurdish Iraq

Earlier this year photographer Pete Masters, owner of the Skinzophenric Tattoo studio in Hereford and its sister shop in the Kurdish capital of Erbil, took his fifth trip out to Iraq. With deep-rooted connections to the country, Pete has taken his camera into corners of the region not often seen.

This month, Pete sat down to tell us about his experiences in Iraq - of volunteer medics, unexpected nightlife, Mosul car bombs, and the children who no longer flinch.

He also shared photos from his most recent trip.
