I love that Mirwais song, but wow, that first video choked me up. I really admire artists who confront and challenge us, not for shock value, but for a real cause.

Thank you so much for sharing this Leigh!

You know, all my snobby art history class mates would diss on VB. I've always loved her work!

Whoa! the word verification for this comment is "veness" weird!

the images are startling -- some gorgeous, and some horrifying.

RE: E.K.- lol.
I agree, I have always liked her, I love that she is not afraid to be controversial.

What an amazing photographer. Very interesting. I love when artists make work that makes you take a moment and think.

I think all those images are hauntingly beautiful.

Controversial artist. I love that. =)

Very amazing. So glad she is doing so much to bring attention to such a horrible situation that is overlooked by most of the world. Especially when the news is mostly economics, we need people like her to keep attention on Darfur and the Sudan as a whole.

How fortunate she was nursing when she went as well.
