From this collection, he chose for this website 1,200 images of the wreckage plus 100 new photos to stress
the invasion's Human Cost. Despite the scale of this
undertaking, too much was wrecked for one person to
record entirely. The images only hint at the flames' heat
and height, the size of the black plume, the odor of oil
burning and roads lined with garbage and corpses, and a
liberated people's joy mingled with shock and despair.
This website is an extension of three Al-Yousifi books: The Evidence, Evidence II: a Study of the Damage to Kuwait from the Iraqi Invasion of 1990-1991, and Free Kuwait: a Testimony from London. Al-Yousifi worked as
a volunteer photographer for the Free Kuwait Campaign in London during the occupation. All photos here are his,
including those of dioramas depicting the invasion, occupation, and war from the Bait Al-Watani museum.
