ISIL Steals Photo

Brian McCarty is best known for his War Toys Project, a photo essay exploring war from the perspective of the children who face it every day. Brian shot the photo on the top-left in Gaza in 2012 just before Operation Pillar of Defense. Last week, Brian emailed us to let us know that Pixsy’s reverse image search had found his photo manipulated and posted by ISIS on Twitter without credit, bearing the caption “Crusaders under bombardment.” This clearly isn’t how Brian intended his work to be used. Dealing with the typical case of photo theft is one thing, but what do you do when the world’s largest terrorist group rips off your work?
