The press photographs reproduced in this publication show the bombing of Bagdad. They were taken from German newspapers soon after the beginning of the second iraqi-american war in March of 2003. Following their removal they were placed and stuck in the centre of a piece of paper, aiming to be as precise as possible (artist's book).
