The starting point of this series is one of the photos leaked from Abu Ghraib camp. 
Towards the end of April 2004, after the invasion of Iraq, a US news channel disclosed the torture, abuse, and humiliation perpetuated by a group of U.S. soldiers on Iraqi prisoners. The story was a major political scandal in the United States and other countries of the coalition. One of these images showed naked prisoners stacked bodies, and reminded me of the stacked corpses of the Nazi concentration camps. 
This series speaks of superimposition, of innocence and cruelty, of toys and bodies, irony and sadness, roughness and sensuality. Tenderness remains abandoned in a strange and desolate world, lost in an indifferent landscape.
