“The war in The Yemen has seen as of 2021 18,400 civilians killed and remains the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. In 2021 over two thirds of the population of The Yemen requires food assistance” Human Rights Watch 2021
I remember the headline of a Time Magazine cover showing a US soldier in Iraq with the headline “What Will It Take To Win”. I immediately thought of the real victims of war, the civilians and in particular the children. I thought of the brave children of the Yemen who have lived through this relentless war since 2014.
I wanted to show the devastation of the bombing in this picture and I wanted to show the bomb itself next to the young Yemeni girl having just fallen from the aeroplane above. A closer look at the aeroplane sees a paper aeroplane, a dollar and tells us the real reason of war. Yet below a thistle grows, its beauty is only matched by its strength just like the people of The Yemen
