How the photo industry is learning to love the moving image.
By American Photo Staff March/April 2008
Timothy's portraits of injured soldiers are on display in Tokyo at MA2Gallery from April 1 - April 30th, 2008.
According to the gallery director, the reaction has been quite powerful and emotional. Here are some of the comments from visitors to the exhibition.
"We Japanese tend to point out our pacifism because of our Hiroshima experience".
"This is America's war. They went to war in total disregard of the United Nations and many of their men and women have paid dearly".
"I am interested in Timothy's work. I have no comment about the Iraq war".
