"The initial idea and inspiration for these images came from the print series The Disasters of War by Goya, in which he documents and denounced the atrocities of the French/Spanish peninsular war of the 1800s. The images I am working with are taken from our daily media coverage of recent and almost commonplace happenings in newspapers, on TV and on radio, of social and criminal acts of violence and ongoing unnecessary deaths – occurrences so frequent that they no longer raise an outcry from our public, yet they still constitute disaster in peacetime."
