“After” explores the destruction of human lives and bodies in war. It was selected by the Social Art Award for inclusion in a book of social art, published in 2017. The piece draws on years the artist spent living in Afghanistan, where she documented a number of significant civilian casualty incidents. In particular, the work is inspired by an investigation into an infamous airstrike in Azizabad in 2008, that resulted in more than 80 civilian deaths, the majority women and children.  The shrapnel wounds on the child's face are vivid, but the face in its burial shroud partially abstracted: she is one but many. The parent's hands are forever reaching.
