Today driving to work I heard a story on NPR
about a photography show at the Corcoran that sounds amazing.
Running from June 29, 2013 – September 29, 2013 at The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. you can view the photography show “WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath”
From the website:
“This landmark exhibition revolutionizes our understanding of this momentous subject, immersing viewers in the experience of soldiers and civilians during wartime. WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY brings together images by more than 200 photographers from 28 nations and covers conflicts from the past 165 years—from the Mexican-American War through present-day conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Organized not chronologically but around themes such as “The Fight,” “Refugees,” and “Remembrance,” it shows how photography has informed our understanding of conflict over time, and around the world. Epic in scope and ambition, and featuring many of the most indelible photographs ever made, WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY takes us from the home front to the battlefield and back again. It is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and arrives on the East Coast as part of a nationwide tour.”
