Jul. 3-Sept. 29: WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath
The nationwide tour of WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath is at the Corcoran Gallery of Art through September 29. The exhibit features images captured by more than 200 photographers covering conflicts that reach as far back as the Mexican-American War. By organizing the photos around themes, rather than in chronological order, the exhibit demonstrates how photography has informed the public's understanding of war. WAMU 88.5 is the official media sponsor.
