For the past seven years, artist Brian McCarty has been working to tell the stories of anonymous children who hail from areas affected by armed conflict. Working with an art therapist, he asks the children to create pictures of their lives in an attempt to understand their stories and validate their experiences. McCarty then finds toys locally and recreates the children’s drawings in photographs, turning their marker doodles into equally harrowing images of bomb raids and bus fires.
