Casualties of War Art Exhibit

Just watched this video on CNN about a young artist from California named Emily Prince whose work is now being shown in an art gallery in London.

Not only is Prince's project profoundly breath-taking and touching, but the technique that she uses to approach each portrait is incredible.

Beginning in 2001, Emily Prince decided to create portraits of all of the U.S. casualties from the on-going wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. They are all done with black ink and she uses different shades of paper to represent their race.

I wish I could travel to London to see the exhibit. It looks amazing. But in the meantime, please check out Emily Prince's website.
