THE REARGUARD shows the reality of war and not the ideal – physically and psychologically maimed individuals on both sides.  

In his essay ”Letter to my three-year-old son” Umberto Eco tells his boy that when he is old enough, he will get all the war toys he desires. And he will show him all sides of the war so that his son will learn that war is futile. Nobody wins. 

72 tin soldiers cast out of 2 different molds – all deformed – photo-graphed from front and back.
