Summary of project:

An artists’ book which pits photomontages of images and slogans of war, weapons, violence, and corporate competition against innocent victims (greeting cards for newborn babies, a row of toddlers, and a newspaper clipping relating the story of how, for eight days, the charred body of a fifteen-month old Palestinian girl was left to be eaten by dogs as soldiers from one of the world’s most powerful armies marched by). Paint is superimposed on some of the images.”
