WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath
WASHINGTON, DC  •  Corcoran Gallery of Art  •  Ongoing

WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath brings together images by more than 185 photographers representing more than 25 nationalities, covering conflicts from the past 165 years—from the Mexican-American War through present-day conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Culled by organizers from more than a million photographs and collections in 17 countries, the landmark exhibition features more than 275 extraordinary images: from 19th-century works by Timothy O’Sullivan and Roger Fenton to Robert Capa’s legendary documentation of the Spanish Civil War and D-Day, to Eddie Adams’s infamous image showing the execution of a Vietcong prisoner, and Susan Meiselas’s groundbreaking coverage of the Nicaraguan Revolution. WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY includes the first print ever made of Joe Rosenthal’s legendary Old Glory Goes Up on Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima (1945). Among the photographers included are such notable figures as Abbas, Diane Arbus, Shimon Attie, Richard Avedon, Dmitri Baltermants, Felice Beato, Cecil Beaton, Nina Berman, Margaret Bourke-White, Bill Brandt, Larry Burrows, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Carolyn Cole, Donna DeCesare, Luc Delahaye, Alfred Eisenstadt, Dan Eldon, Alexander Gardner, Phillip Jones Griffiths, Lori Grinker, Tim Hetherington, Chris Hondros, Evgeny Khaldei, Don McCullin, Lee Miller, James Nachtwey, Simon Norfolk, Gilles Peress, August Sander, W. Eugene Smith, David “Chim” Seymour, Gerda Taro, Larry Towell, Nick Ut, Damon Winter, and Georgi Zelma.
