"I make art about the trauma of war. I look for it below the surface, searching out its invisible wounds and the resilience needed to overcome them. The challenge is to look beyond appearances, and stimulate transformation both within myself and in other traumatized people. As a combat-wounded photojournalist, I have experienced and documented the fringe horrors humanity can inflict. From an underwater lens, my art is made to inform about war, and those yearning to rebuild afterward. My work is often fragmented, showing fighters and victims, survivors and the suffering, tormentors and refugees, as they intersect and diverge. I am interested in the spaces of war and the people in them."
