Steve Mumford Interview: Painting Iraq

Glasschord posted a terrific interview with artist Steve Mumford. Noah Post spent time with Mumford discussing his time working in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"Steve Mumford recently returned from his fourth trip to Iraq, where he spent some ten-and-a-half months drawing. He was embedded with numerous units in the U.S. Army, and also spent time with Iraqis, particularly in Baghdad, where he got to know many young artists. Through drawing Mumford hoped to depict the day-to-day experience of the war zone, from the point of view of both the soldiers and the Iraqis he got to know." - Read the entire interview on Glasschord
