Nina Berman presents casual, sometimes hyper realistic moments that reveal what it’s really like to live in Babylon. She is well known for Purple Hearts, a series of images of young injured veterans.

Her latest work, Homeland, pictures this nation’s imaginings of its own greatness. Big, real pictures of a big, loud, fuck you country. Hooah!
