WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath

By Ruth Dunn on July 2nd 2013

Washington’s Corcoran gallery is currently holding a landmark exhibition which uses photography to immerse the audience in the experiences of soldiers and civilians during wartime.

As well as presenting us with the bravery, heartache, sacrifice and touching moments of war, this exhibition also shows the importance of photography and how it informs our understanding of these events.

Organised around themes such as “The Fight,” “Refugees,” and “Remembrance,” WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY includes images by more than 200 photographers from 28 nations, covering conflicts from the past 165 years—from the Mexican-American War through present-day conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The exhibition was put together by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and is part of a nationwide tour. The above video gives insight into WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY from the curators at the Museum of Fine Arts and includes a slideshow of selected photographs. For more information click here.
