On the 20th of March 2003, Ireland's Government authorised the use of Shannon Airport by US Military and CIA aircraft for the war on Iraq. This policy has meant an abrogation of Ireland's long-held policy of neutrality, against the wishes of its people. Since then 2.2 million armed troops and thousands of tonnes of weapons and munitions have passed through Shannon Airport. I have used existing photographs of Iraqi dead, military planes and troop carriers to create mosaic images that make a direct connection between the use of Shannon airport and the consequences for Iraq. As with Abu Ghraib, many of the images of victims were shot on camera phones by US troops as 'war trophies'.
