Iraq Body Count is an ongoing human security project which maintains and updates the world’s largest public database of violent civilian deaths during and since the 2003 invasion. The count encompasses non-combatants killed by military or paramilitary action and the breakdown in civil security following the invasion.
Data is drawn from cross-checked media reports, hospital, morgue, NGO and official figures to produce a credible record of known deaths and incidents.
Rhubarb-Rhubarb is the internationally renowned West Midlands based Development Agency for photographic artists working with traditional and new technologies . Rhubarb-Rhubarb works to build the confidence of photographers facing the rapidly changing fine art image world and marketplaces - virtual and in real time.
For artists living and working in the West Midlands, we offer one to one portfolio reviews across the region, a Bursary Scheme supported by Arts Council England for a free day at the International Photographic Review, mentoring through schemes such as Morning After with our sister company, Creative Alliance, and opportunities for showing at and travelling to a range of international events and festivals.
Beyond the West Midlands we have a programme of development relevant to different stages of experience and knowledge – for third year students, graduates, self taught and early emerging artists working with the photographic image, we have designed Cultivate, a programme which runs twice yearly in different regions of the UK.
Mid career and established image practitioners are invited to apply for places at The International Portfolio Event - known as Europe’s premiere review of this kind, which is held annually in Birmingham, UK. Or attend seminars, workshops and one to one or group consultancy regarding future opportunity or market profiling.
Through these activities, we aim to nurture talent, inspire growth, create opportunities for future image endeavours and bring together photographers with international experts who can influence and advise on current market matters and share image world knowledge.
Rhubarb-Rhubarb also curates, organises and manages exhibitions and commissions, and is developing its approaches to selling fine art photographs, working with some of the world’s most renowned galleries, curators, publishers, collectors and agents.
