About the work
Dima Gavrysh
Ukranian, b. 1978
Follow

Working as a news photographer with the US Army in Afghanistan, Dima Gavrysh captures lesser-seen aspects of war, like bullet-littered floors, shadows of sandbags, and soldiers during times of non-combat. Growing up in the former Soviet Union, Gavrysh was exposed to another, earlier military conflict involving Afghanistan in the wake of World War II, and he became fascinated with the military, its order, and masculinity. Shot in black-and-white on an iPhone and edited with the app Hipstamatic, Gavrysh’s 2009 series “Inshallah” (“god willing” in Arabic) merges the artist’s childhood struggles and personal history with current events, creating an intercultural synthesis of military conflicts. Focusing on personal interpretations rather than reportage, his photographs strive to reveal the beauty in an otherwise gruesome setting.
