Publisher Note

Withheld due to: deals with one of the greatest torture scandals in recent times. It calls upon the viewers to question what they see, and the feelings it creates in them while looking at it.
Can images shock, despite not showing anything shocking?
Does a censored transparency still create transparency?
What do you feel when you look at an isolated part of the body?
Withheld due to: is created with government-released images and files from Abu Ghraib and the War on Terror. It does not seek to please. It’s disturbing, with the full intention of doing so.
