Shadows is the second part of a trilogy of installations which focus on the power and politics of a single extraordinary image. The photograph at the center of Shadows was taken by Dutch photojournalist Koen Wessing in Estelí, Nicaragua, at the height of the Sandinista insurrection in 1978. “From this image I still get nightmares," Wessing continued to recall years later.
