David Hempenstall: Camp Slayer

1 July 2009 to 2 August 2009

During 2005–06 David Hempenstall lived and worked on the US military base, Camp Slayer inside the Abu Ghurayb complex, Iraq. This exhibition presents photographs of that experience. Comprising 165 Polaroid photographs, the exhibition is a record of the battered remains of the palace complex and the new infrastructure associated with the occupying military forces. For David, the works are also a creative exploration of the photographer's environment – one at odds with the sensational images that we view in print and television media coverage.
