Dead Troops Talk (A Vision After an Ambush of a Red Army Patrol, Afghanistan) and more art by Jeff Wall

Dead Troops Talk (A Vision After an Ambush of a Red Army Patrol, Afghanistan) , 1986

David Yorath mentions how there are constructions and manipulations present and some photographers have “fiddled” with reality such as “Cattle Skull, Bad Lands, South Dakota” by Arthur Rothstein 1936 and the pictured photograph. Wall uses “digital manipulation as well as montage to create vast, back-lit tableaus that resemble epic war paintings of the 19th century.” (Yorath, 2000)
