The reason for war...


It was a Hundred Years’ War with modern weaponry, and backers on the sidelines in safe countries, a war sponsored by gun- and drug-runners. It became evident that political enemies were secretly joined in financial arms deals. ‘The reason for war was war.’

Jim Goldberg is well known for his photographs, multi-media projects and books. His work often combines words and images to create vivid narratives about both insiders and outsiders of society. Goldberg, a professor at California College of the Arts, is a three-time National Endowment of the Arts Fellow, and a Guggenheim Fellowship recipient. His landmark book Rich and Poor has been re-designed and expanded by the artist for Steidl.

Donovan Wylie frequently focuses on the social and political landscape of his native country of Ireland. Wylie is a member of Magnum Photos and has won a BAFTA Award for his film, The Train. His recent trilogy of books, entitled The Tower Series, depicts vision and power in military architecture across the globe.
