Luke Wolagiewicz

IRAQ (Iraq, 2006-2008)

The picture that the vast majority of the public have of war is largely shaped by an endless daily flood of news images. We see American soldiers searching homes, vehicles being blown up by suicide bombers, Iraqi security troops being trained. However necessary and even matter-of-course the presence of such images is, they shove less obvious aspects of war into the background. In his work Luke Wolagiewicz tries to capture the other side in images. He is in search of the surreal and claustrophobic atmosphere of danger, and tries to reveal those moments of insight that occur in the midst of chaos and violence.
