The first volume of War-Toys chronicles McCarty's collaborations over the course of two years with children in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza Strip. Drawings that the boys and girls created are shown alongside the photographs they inspired, sometimes taken while fighting raged closeby. The resulting series provides powerful context for the children's accounts while documenting the playthings available in each area. These cheap, plastic arsenals mirror what the children see everyday - in the news and on the streets.
