Made up of hundreds of separate, layered images, Iraq War Image was made as a response to the ongoing conflict in Iraq between 2003 – 2011 and its fallout.

I made this piece whilst studying at the Royal College of Art in 2006. The idea was that no single photograph could give a true representation of what was happening in Iraq at the time.

Inspired by the war paintings of Paul Nash and Picasso’s Guernica I layered hundreds of contemporary photos on top of one another, to create a new image. A shifting, confusing, menacing image, which I felt captured a more truthful representation of the ongoing horror, than the images we were being bombarded with every day.
