The installation Docile Soldier takes the power relation between the photographer and the subject of photography
to the extreme. In this case, the photographer is an officer (the artist himself) who follows the process of his
subordinates, as they become soldiers. Unlike other officers, however, Jarrar also follows/documents this process
with his camera. Photography is the result of an encounter between one and the other. In this encounter,
one is holding a camera, while the other, knowingly or not, becomes the photographed or filmed soldier.
An image -aspects of that soldier- are inscribed within the film.
