Christopher Sims
War on Terror: Inside / Out

Stacy Pearsall

War on Terror: Inside / Out—Photographs by Christopher Sims and Stacy Pearsall juxtaposes the work of two artists: Sims’ photographs capture simulated Iraqi and Afghani villages in the US where troops train prior to their overseas deployment; while Pearsall, a military photographer, shows troops in the field in Iraq and Afghanistan. Timed to coincide with the beginning of Barack Obama’s first term as President, this exhibition provides a glimpse into two worlds we have had very little access to since the War on Terror began. According to Sloan, “These photographers show us aspects of what life is like for the U.S. soldier from training to battlefield.”
