Documenting the Invisible

Trevor Paglen (b. 1974) is an American artist, activist, author, investigative journalist, researcher, photographer and geographer. In his work, he sets out to redefine contemporary documentary photography, as well as landscape and war photography, employing abstract and multi-layered images in lieu of naïve photojournalism, in an attempt to document that which we cannot see. His projects raise questions about our possibility to see, document and understand images and reality in a hidden global war against “dark forces” and the “axis of evil”.
