“I was a soldier, part of the invasion from Kuwait into Baghdad. I was part of a war. The images, if anything, served to express feelings and longings that I couldn’t as a soldier. We were at war. There’s no place for personal feelings.
I wasn’t a photographer at that point in my life. The photographs were taken to document that period for myself like what a tourist would. The images were later edited to reveal a subconscious mood that I felt but couldn’t articulate clearly at the time.”
