A massive collection of unforgettable photographs (with equally memorable text) taken by Riley Sharbonno, an Army nurse at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, serves as the foundation for this anti-war artist's book by Monica Haller. Although Haller edits and introduces the book with a short text reproduced on the front cover, the real story here belongs, rightly, to Sharbonno, whose photographs are both records of and distancing mechanisms from what he saw and experienced.
