The Annenberg Space for Photography continues to host group exhibitions that reveal the true condition of humanity using the most accessible, developing medium we have today. Their upcoming show, WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath, includes over 150 images and a film from both military and civilian points of view spanning 1887-2012. The photographs (by famed conflict photographers such as Alexandra Avakian, Carolyn Cole, Ashley Gilbertson, Edouard H.R. Glück, David Hume Kennerly, and Joao Silva) explore the advent of war, daily routines, the fight itself, the aftermath, medical care, prisoners of war, refugees, executions, memorials, remembrance, and more.
Overall, the exhibit promises an in-depth examination of humanity's history of violence, which couldn't be more relevant, especially in the U.S. where talks of gun rights have increased in the last few months. The Annenberg warns that, "The photographs in this exhibition may not be suitable for all visitors."
Visit WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath from March 23, 2013 to June 2, 2013, alongside weekly lectures from photographers in the field.
