Can images shock, despite not showing anything shocking?
Does a censored transparency still create transparency?
What do you feel when you look at an isolated part of the body?
This artist book, Withheld due to:, deals with one of the greatest torture scandals in recent times. It calls upon the viewers to question what they see, and the feelings it creates in them while looking at it. It was created with government-released images and files from the infamous Abu Ghraib prison and the War on Terror. It does not seek to please. It’s disturbing, with the full intention of doing so.
