Leave and Let Us Go presents a portrait of Iraq —a country often misunderstood and misrepresented. In this new book, Alexandra Rose Howland combines her own photographs with found images and written testimonies. Her aim is to challenge and expand the ways that geopolitical events are communicated. The publication of Leave and Let Us Go coincides with an exhibition of the project at FOAM, Amsterdam 2021.
Alexandra Rose Howland (1990, US/UK) has lived in the Middle East over the last decade, creating work that aims to challenge and expand the ways that geopolitical events are communicated. Her background as an abstract painter informs her practice, resulting in multidimensional projects that use images, found objects, interviews and video. Through her work, she seeks to generate a more expansive understating of how conflict is portrayed. She has shown internationally with both solo and group exhibitions including Leave and Let Us Go (solo), FOAM Museum Amsterdam, Road to Mosul (solo), London, Textured to Only Us (solo), Los Angeles.
