Why if I had known our arrival log would make it into Le Journal de la Photographie I would’ve put a little bit more effort into my hand-writing. Find out about the chips and fake corpses and much more:

In between the Croatian volunteer Siniša and the Chinese photographer Hai Zhang arriving, Arfun came in with a coffin. It was to go with Eugene Richard’s show, War is Personal. The powerful, but sensitive work needed to be contextualized for a local audience and the coffin was to be part of the exhibit. Arfun couldn’t resist playing corpse.“
