"I believe [...] that one service I can give to these people is to not edit their stories."

Daniel Heyman's (b. 1963) works on paper capture the images and words of Iraqi torture victims from United States facilities like Abu Ghraib. Several of these images were created while sitting in the room with the victim and listening to his testimony. He says, "One service I can give to these people is to not edit their stories." Heyman was honored with a 2010 Guggenheim Fellowship in fine arts. His work has been exhibited at Cade Tompkins Projects, Providence, RI; the Museum of Art, University of Iowa, Iowa City; the Katzen Center Museum of Art, American University, Washington, D.C.; the Print Center, Philadelphia; International Print Center, New York; and Crane Archive Space, Philadelphia. His work appears in numerous collections, some of which include the Baltimore Museum of Art, MD; the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH; the Library of Congress, Washington, DC; and the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT. Heyman received his A.B. from Dartmouth College, and his M.F.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
