109 Notes

Since 2011, Brian McCarty (featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 1) has traveled to wartorn areas in the Middle East, speaking with children who have witnessed extreme violence. With the help of therapists, McCarty conducts art interviews with the children and invites them communicate their experiences through drawings. These drawings in turn become the basis for McCarty’s photographic works in his “War Toys” series, where he stages violent scenarios using toys to illuminate the traumas these children experience. The V&A Museum of Childhood in London is investigating some of the themes put forth in McCarty’s work with an exhibition titled “War Games.” Read more after the jump!:
