Funny to Poignant, Portraits of War
With a focus on intimate portraits of anonymous soldiers, civilians and such leaders from Zapata to Churchill, the WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath at the Brooklyn Museum is a must-see. It features over 400 images spanning 165 years.

Major PhotoDocumentary Talent at Brooklyn Museum Show
Anyone interested in photography should steel themselves for a tough topic but make a beeline to the Brooklyn Museum's 2013-2014 winter exhibition called WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY. Some of the world's leading photojournalists, portrait photographers and visual war documentarians are represented in this blockbuster show.

A Million War Photographs Distilled to 400 at Brooklyn Museum Show
Suppose you faced a stack of a million photographs from wars all around the world, from the Holocaust to the Crimean War to recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, tasked with chosing the most representative 500 images? The show currently at the Brooklyn Museum, WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY is the result of just such a decade-long project. The curated outcome features extraordinary, memorable images of the range of human experience in armed conflict.

Why War Photographers Photograph War
Awash in images, Americans might not think often about their source. A new, time-limited show at the Brooklyn Museum, WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY, features the work of a special genre of photographers. Why do they cover a topic that could (and sometimes does) lead to their own death in the fray of combat? Who are they? And what are the ethical questions surrounding the practice of taking photos instead of jumping into the action to save a life?

Funny to Poignant, Portraits of War
Afghanistan. Iraq. Gaza. The Arab Spring. Darfur. Bosnia. In recent memory more armed conflicts than most Americans could enumerate have embroiled our country and others. A new exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY takes a hard, frank look at the human experience of war, including soldiers, civilians, politicians and others. Some of it is heartbreaking and hard to see; other images are full of victory, joy and friendship. It's worth a visit.

Women in WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY Exhibit
Among the many topics raised by the Brooklyn Museum's provocative show, WAR?PHOTOGRAPHY is the question of the impact of war on women. Learn more about the show and this issue.

Visitor Info: Brooklyn Museum's WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY exhibit
On view through the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season is a sobering, worthwhile exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. It's worth the visit; get information here on where, when and whether to bring children, teens and those impacted by armed conflict.
