This poster offers a poignant and deafening look at the strength of the people of Iraq, its buildings and trees, in the face of murderous fighter jets taunting them from the sky. It is inspired by a line from a spoken word piece by bigHead: “fighter jets drop fishing nets filled with hate and disrespect.”
A high res version of the poster is available for download; but only under the condition that you print it and share its beauty with the world to see.
