There is a sinister undertone to the Valley of Casualties photo series, which has everything to do with the mysterious skulking behaviour of the subjects in each image. Clearly up to no good, these shots, paired with the title of the series, suggests that they are all on a killer mission.

Shot by Mark David, who is living and working in Den Haag, Netherlands, the Valley of Casualties photo series has a cinematic quality that compels the viewer to dig into its potential narrative. What happened before? What is happening now? What will happen? Those are questions that are posed by the images and then answered creatively by the audience. Dark and dramatic, it won't be hard to imagine what scenarios people will be landing on.
