I'd like to share this installation piece as it deals with the Abu Ghraib photographs released by the international press in May 2004, depicting human right abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison.  I transformed the images into a collection of postage stamps that I then mailed around the globe.

Words Without Pictures, Again

06.08.08 | Julian Stallabrass

We have been having quite a lot of difficulty securing loans and rights to use photography of the ‘other side’ in the Vietnam War: the photographs taken by the National Liberation Front and the North Vietnamese Army. This photography is highly distinct from our stereotypical image of the Vietnam War. First, it shows the other side, living, laughing, resting, labouring and fighting, and through those pictures we get a glimpse of how they and their state viewed their struggle. The W .....read more

The authors do not reproduce the notorious photographs because they argue that the pictures in and of themselves are misleading, and what .....read more
