Dronestagram Digs up Pretty Depressing Images of Where the Drones Hit

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  November 18, 2012


War isn’t always a bad thing – sometimes it’s been necessary for sweeping changes to take place. But it is, for the most part, a tragic time. Because aside from risking the lives of soldiers, there’s also the matter of taking away the lives of innocent civilians. These days, fewer human lives are risked in the skies as the military uses drones to carry out a lot of their bombing.

As you can see, it’s pretty well-documented. And now with the click of a button, you can view images of drone-hit areas in war zones like Afghanistan, where hundreds, if not thousands, of buildings and other structures have been leveled by these blasts.

This is all possible through Dronestagram, which makes use of image-sharing platforms like Tumblr and Instagram to share these images of destruction.

Behind the project is James Bridle, who explains his motivation behind it:

Wadi al Abu Jabara. Beit al Ahan. Jaar. Dhamar. Al-Saeed. Tappi. Bulandkhel. Hurmuz. Khaider khel. These are the names of places. They are towns, villages, junctions and roads. They are the names of places where people live and work, where there are families and schools. They are the names of places in Afghanistan and Yemen, which are linked by one thing: they have each been the location of drone strikes in the past couple of months.

Follow Dronestagram on Tumblr and Instagram and see the damage for yourself.
