Doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­pher Her­linde Koelbl’s lat­est se­ries, Tar­gets, has seen her travel far and wide, pho­tograph­ing prim­i­tive tar­gets made of fab­ric, card­board, and pa­per made by semi-le­gal armies, as well as mo­tor­ized and re­mote-con­trolled figures on wheels en­gi­neered by mil­i­tant forces. To­gether, the im­ages tell a fas­ci­nat­ing story, not just about the train­ing of young re­cruits around the world to shoot to kill, but so too about the chang­ing face of war­fare in the tech­no­log­i­cal age.
