The face of war
I have been to five funerals this year. Yet, I can only imagine what the people in Iraq are going through as they deal with the effects of the war day after day. This is an image I shot at a funeral in Matagalpa Nicaragua in the mid 1980’s during the war between the Contras and the Sandanistas. Three volunteers had been killed by the Contras as a message to all foreign aid workers and American students who were there in in solidarity with the Sandanistas, in an effort to clear them from the war zone.
