SummaryMcCarty brings together war and toys in photography that explores what children living in war zones experience every day.
Description"War-Toys" chronicles the artist's collaborations over the course of two years with children in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The book shows drawings the children created alongside the photographs they inspired. The resulting series provides powerful context for the children’s accounts while documenting the playthings available in each area. These cheap, plastic arsenals mirror what the children see every day -- in the news and on the streets.
