The pictures in this volume are staged war themed images that are part of a much wider body of work titled “Past Presence.” Past Presence was created as part of an investigation into... More > human perception of imagery, how it can manipulate beliefs and inspire ways of thinking. The acclaimed photographer Nicola J McKenna created a range of scenarios for this body of work which began in 2003.
