"The Worst Place I Have Been in my Life"

Photographer Ben Hodson recently complied a large (6m x 3m) photo-montage out of 3,000+ individual photos from the inside of one of the cells from Amna Suraka prison in northern Iraq. The result is currently on display in the UCMK gallery in Milton Keynes, UK.

The prison was used extensively by Sadaam Hussein's government and includes cells and torture chambers. The artist spent an extended time documenting the inside of the "worst place I have been in my life."
