Peter van Agtmael

AMERICAN WARS (United States, Afghanistan, Iraq, 2006-ongoing)

Since early in 2006 the freelance photographer Peter van Agtmael has been photographing the consequences of the wars conducted by the United States – at home and abroad. In Afghanistan and Iraq he goes out with the nightly house searches, looking for weapons and bomb-making materials. He shows us how wounded soldiers are evacuated by helicopter and recover in military hospitals. Back in the US he records how soldiers pick up their lives again after all the horrors of the front, and how the families of the fallen deal with their loss.
