Iraq Perspective was BENJAMIN LOWY’s attempt to visualise the perspective from which he had to experience Iraq – namely through the window of an armoured vehicle.

LOWY about this project:

I began this project as a response to what I felt wat the general inability of people back home to comprehend what Iraq is like. Most people have never really seen or felt the effect of war. Confronted by a level of violence so high that walking on the streets  to photograph is tantamount to suicidal behavior, I found myself confined to working iwth American soldiers, spending most of my time going on various missions while looking at the landscape of this broken country. My only view was through the inches-thick bulletproof window of an Army Humvee.
