In Homeland, happy families step through suburbs clutching anti-nuke pills
Delivery policy (edit with Customer reassurance module)
In Homeland, happy families step through suburbs clutching anti-nuke pills. Small town police train to hunt Al-Qaeda. Recruitment spectacles transform children into would be killers. Military goats perform in war on terror scripts. And beneath it all stands the image of a warrior Jesus inspiring megachurch millions toward the end times. Looking at the pictures shot in a rich saturated technicolor, one asks, are the scenes real, or an elaborate state sponsored performance art designed to amuse a public desperately seeking a superhero ending in an age of empire decline?
Berman, an internationally acclaimed photographer best known for her ground breaking images of American military wounded in the Iraq war, Purple Hearts, (Trolley, 2004) once again pushes us to look at American power and myth as it plays out in the heartland.
