Having made a portrait of a blind war victim, Martin Roemers (born 1962) realized there was a tremendous potency in the image, and began to make photographs of thousands of people who had lost their eyesight as children or young soldiers during the Second World War. The Eyes of War features around 40 portraits of war victims from Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, the Ukraine and Russia.
