PDN Video Pick: Poisoned While Deployed
We salute our soldiers, but tend to avert our eyes from the physical and emotional toll that our wars are taking on their lives. But NOOR photographer Nina Berman has been insisting that we see, beginning with her acclaimed “Purple Hearts” project in 2004. Most recently, she produced a powerful series of videos for Disabled American Veterans about former soldiers exposed–with dire consequences–to toxic fumes from the US military’s open trash-burning pits in Iraq.
You can see other videos from Berman’s “Poisoned While Deployed” series at her Vimeo page.
