About The Artwork

depictions of American soldiers appropriated from news feeds, military websites and personal photographs from friends and family involved in the conflicts. These sources reveal images in which the war is exposed in fragments. Singular isolated moments combine to express a spectrum of experiences. Common hardships and the sacrifices that they endure. The work uses this collection of fragmented images taken out of context in order to re-contextualize them with soldiers' personal stories and statements.
