Bedrooms of the Fallen


How do you show the horrors of war without showing the horrors of war? Ashley Gilbertson has come up with a poignant way. His book ‘Bedrooms of the Fallen’

depicts the bedrooms of soldiers killed in action in Iraq over the last 10 years. The artifacts that litter many of these rooms hint at the extreme youth of many who died and reminds us of many promising lives cut brutally short.
