The Watch

Based on the tragic tale Antigone by Sophocles, The Watch is a novel by Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya. It tells of a young girl who struggles to bury her brother killed during the US conflict in Afghanistan.

My work is featured on the book website and in the end papers of the first hardcover edition published by Hogarth / Random House, Inc.

To capture Antigone's strong will, compassion and ultimate tragic condemnation, I created images that refer to the original tragic tale.
