Artist Statement

Tintypes were commonly used during the Civil War era to capture portraits of soldiers who were fighting in the war. I did the same, but I showed images of the Iraq/Afghanistan war instead. The images often showed children as well to show the trauma of fighting on their home soil. Text quotes were added to shed some light on the circumstances at hand. One of the Tin’s, Untitled 1, is a copy of a newspaper article discussing the war.
