Antonin Kratochvil (see some samples here and lots of them here) has just published his Homage to Abu Ghraib. I’d probably be the last person who’d want Abu Ghraib to be forgotten, but I’m not sure that creating photos of an event that became known through photos is really such a good idea. After all, the original photos are chilling enough - and it’s hard to see what re-creations add to them.
