Monica Haller's project Riley and His Story presents the daily life of the Iraq war, as lived and photographed by Riley Sharbonno, an army nurse who served at Abu Ghraib prison from 2004-2005. Riley used his camera as an almost prosthetic device to record the events his memory suppressed; on other occasions he used the camera to "store" overwhelming experiences with the aim of processing them later. Many of these images are indeed overwhelming--"these aren't the photos we're likely to find in grandma's photo album 50 years from now," he rightly observes--and the photo pages in this book are variously sized, creating intersection and overlap to mimic the unstable nature of such memories and convey the blurry jumble of amnesia and trauma. Riley and His Story is an invitation to all, including war veterans, family and friends, to encounter the realities of warfare as related by one who was there.

Book Description Onestar Press / Fälth & Hässler, Paris, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Printed paper-covered boards; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs and text by Riley Sharbonno. Additional photographs by Parker Hahn. Edited and with cover text by Monica Haller. Graphic design by Matthew Rezac. 482 pp., with full-bleed, four-color plates throughout. 9-1/4 x 6-1/2 inches. This first edition was limited to 1000 copies. [Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume III. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2014)]. New in publisher's shrink-wrap. A massive collection of unforgettable photographs (with equally memorable text) taken by Riley Sharbonno, an Army nurse at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, serves as the foundation for this anti-war artist's book by Monica Haller. Although Haller edits and introduces the book with a short text reproduced on the front cover, the real story here belongs, rightly, to Sharbonno, whose photographs are both records of and distancing mechanisms from what he saw and experienced.
