About this title

Synopsis:

The Imperial War Museum commissioned two contemporary artists to respond to the terrorist attacks of September 11th and the war in Afghanistan. Paul Searwright was the first to go, in June 2002. He has responded to the painful and extraordinary challenge of the situation in the country with profound imagination and sensitivity. Avoiding the trappings of an exoticising vision, typified by the media's portrayal of Afghanistan as a spectacle of ruins, Seawright's photographs are spare and understated. His response to these heavily mined desert landscapes, extends and reworks the distinctive aesthetic established by his earlier photographs of contested, politically contaminated landscapes in his home city of Belfast and more recently on the fringes of various European cities.

About the Author:

Paul Seawright was born in Belfast (1965) and lives in Wales where he is Professor of Photography at The University of Wales College Newport. He is an accomplished artist whose photographs are exhibited and collected internationally. In 1997 he was awarded the Irish Museum of Modern Art/Glen Dimplex Prize. He is one of the artists selected to represent Wales at the 50th International Venice Biennale of Art 2003.
