Photos: The Graffiti War Project Documents Soldier's Graffiti in the Middle East
When covering the past decade of wars and atrocities in the Middle East, what is rarely shown is the art work. The Graffiti of War project has spearheaded the documentation of this artwork, mostly murals and graffiti, service people created during downtime while serving abroad. These photos provide “an unconventional historical record of this generation’s war” and allow the reader to experience the real lives, experiences, and emotions of real soldiers in times of war.
“Our Mission is that through sharing these images” reads The Graffiti of War website, “[is] to bridge this ever-widening divide between those who have endured these wars and the rest of the world that can only imagine the horrors.”
The material from the project will eventually be compiled into a book, release date TBD. The project is on-going and continues to accept submissions, if you or any of your friends or relatives would like to contribute. “We need your support to ensure the success of this project” – GOF Website
