Ten years after the U.S.-led war on Iraq, photojournalist Geert van Kesteren releases an extended and updated iPad App edition of his international acclaimed and award winning photo book WHY MISTER, WHY? – IRAQ, 2003-2004. An in-depth view and reflection of contradicting realities – from the perspective of the ‘common’ people – that reveal why this war was doomed to fail.
With more than 400 images, diary notes, extended captions and citations this iPad App reveals the realities on the ground and provides deeper understanding of the causes that shaped the instability and violence that keep terrorizing the Iraqi people up to this day.
From the large volume of photographic work Dutch photojournalist Geert van Kesteren produced in Iraq in 2003 and 2004, he compiled the book WHY MISTER, WHY? published by Artimo in 2004. The publication won various prestigious awards, became an instant-classic and has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions. In this new photodocumentary-app, Van Kesteren adds 166 images to the original 237 photographs of the book, taken in the period 2003-2004. The app provides deeper understandings and context with a new foreword, extended captions and citations from those who featured in his work.
