In a highly personal approach to photography, artist Jennifer Karady works with American veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to create images that tell their individual stories and address their difficulties in adjusting to civilian life. Each new work is initiated by an extensive interview process with the veteran, followed by a collaboration in which the veteran reenacts a chosen moment from war within the safe space of his or her everyday environment, often surrounded by family and friends. Unlike some photographers who use actors to stage narratives, Karady works with real veterans to dramatize their stories through metaphorical, narrative, and allegorical techniques. Through this process the artist makes visible the psychological impact of war—the nightmares and memories that soldiers continue to experience after returning home.
