" In all wars I use photography to distance myself from the world of hateful men that I truly loathe. A mental flak jacket if you will ~ I am shamefully addicted to the deep feral nature of war but powerless even with the most grotesque images able to change its course "  Sebastian Rich.

My new photographic book 'CONFLICT' is now available for sale and available online. Please click on the 'Interviews and Publications' heading above for purchasing and shipping options. I have been covering war and conflict all my adult life. I set myself a challenge and chose only twenty images from thousands.
I could fill a book with a multitude of unnecessarily disturbing images,but have chosen just twenty that resonate with me as I hope they do with you.

On a recent early morning walk on a deserted beach in an area called the 'Panhandle' on the Northern most tip of Cyprus (Turkish occupied area) I was inspired to photograph this wonderful seascape by a long favorite British artist of mine Joseph Mallord William Turner, better known as J.M.W. Turner, was born on April 23, 1775, in Covent Garden, London, England. Turner brought luminosity and Romantic imagery to his subjects and his often violent seascapes. His work—initially realistic—became more fluid and poetic, and is now regarded as a predecessor to Impressionism. Turner died on December 19, 1851, in Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, London, England.
