It is common practice for news media conglomerates to misappropriate grim images from one geopolitical event to another. For example, to publish a grotesque image from the civil war in Syria within an article about a peaceful civil protest in Brazil etc. At worst of times, images get maliciously altered (with Photoshop) to intensify public perception or put forward false narratives.
The above photos in my ongoing series Misappropriations are based on images published by Russian news agencies that either misappropriated documentations from other conflicts or literary photoshopped fire and smoke onto a peaceful panorama of a city. They then published the images as illustrations for stories where Ukrainian central government bombed civilians in heavily populated cities. To create these digital prints I appropriated those images, re-cropped and inverted them into their photographic negatives.
