British, 1970 and 1971

Rejecting the 21st-century obsession with “shock-value” photojournalism, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin approach their craft as something closer to ethnography. The pair avoid a signature style, and instead opt for a minimal, almost neutral approach, culling visual data about human behavior in realms of political discord. For example, for The Day Nobody Died (2008), they joined the British Army in Afghanistan and made a series of photographs that respond to each event they witnessed by exposing film to the light for 20 seconds. These abstract, camera-less photograms are the antithesis of war photography, referencing the impossibility of capturing on film the horrors of war.
