AKHIL VAIDYA – JOURNAL 10

This piece by Lawrence Abu Hamdan is called “Disputed Utterance” and was made in 2019. It consists of seven, life-size photos of the insides of mouths paired with a story in which a linguistic misunderstanding lead to a death, legal battle, or persecution. Some of the stories are really interesting and I find the pairing with the photograph to be a compelling package.
