Photographer Brian McCarty is currently documenting the experiences and art of children in war-torn areas of the Middle East. Throughout the project – called War Toys – the children help create the photographs and film documentary.
From the War Toys Project website:
WAR-TOYS is a work-in-progress photo essay and documentary film by Brian McCarty. Using Brian’s unique toy photography and principles of play and art therapy, the project explores firsthand accounts of war from the perspective of children living in its day-to-day reality. Working through local humanitarian organizations in Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank, WAR-TOYS focuses on the latest generation of Israelis and Palestinians that has never known an existence without the constant threat of rocket attacks, air strikes, gunfire, explosions, and incursions.
