Nina Berman

Since October 2003, Berman has been making portraits and conducting interviews with Americans wounded in the Iraq War. Seeking them out at their homes after they have been discharged from the military hospitals at Walter Reed in Washington, D.C. and Brooke Army in San Antonio, TX, her forthright portraits present a startling and humanistic view of the affects of war. She writes, “An image of a wounded American soldier is one of the few pieces of documentary evidence the American public can see to begin a process of separating propaganda—that war is quick and bloodless—from truth.”
