War Toys series inspired by drawings of children in war-torn areas

Using figurines he found as his model, California-based photographer Brian McCarty presents an ongoing project known as WAR-TOYS, where warfare is explored through the eyes of children. Started in 2011, this project saw McCarty travel to Gaza, Israel and the West Bank to focus on ‘the latest generation of Israelis and Palestinians that has never known an existence without the constant threat of rocket attacks, air strikes, gunfire, explosions, and incursions’.
