Nothing Personal shows the back office of war, which is the complete opposite of a battlefield: an oversized playground for adults with wine, finger food, and shiny weapons.
Every day on the news we are watching pictures of war and destruction, and the expenditure on armaments is setting new records year after year. But here dead bodies are mannequins or pixels on screens of many simulators. Bazookas and machine guns are plugged into flat screens and war action is staged in an artificial environment in front of a tribune full of high-ranked guests, ministers, heads of state, generals, and traders. The pictures of this still ongoing project have been taken so far at 16 defence exhibitions that took place in the 5 continents between 2016 and 2022 (Poland, Belarus, South Korea, Germany, France, South Africa, China, United Arab Emirates, USA, Peru, Russia, Vietnam, and India).
