PhotoLucida's Critical Mass 2010 Pre Screening Picks-Claire Beckett

I saw Claire Beckett's photo (see below) during Humble Arts Foundation 31 Women and was so touch by it and it was one of my favorites of the show.

With the series "Simulating Iraq" Claire  looked at American military training for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. These photographs were made on military bases within the U.S., in fabricated spaces designed to mimic Iraq and Afghanistan. The simulations include the use of specific architecture, objects and costumes, and Americans (both soldiers and civilians) who role-play as Iraqis and Afghans.
