IN THE GALLERY: AFTERMATH: WAR IS ONLY HALF THE STORY

FEBRUARY 8 – APRIL 7, 2019

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

This exhibition is sponsored by Parrett Company.

Curated by Sara Terry and Teun van der Heijden, Aftermath: War is Only Half the Story tells the incredibly moving stories of the people left behind after the cameras have moved on from a war zone. Drawing on photographs from over fifty photographers, these personal and often poetic post-war views unveil not only another side to the devastating effects of war, but also tell the stories of people coming together to rebuild and heal. Aftermath: War is Only Half the Story illumines and defines our humanity while giving visibility to those coping with the lingering ramifications of conflict.

The exhibition is a ten-year retrospective of the work of the groundbreaking documentary photography program The Aftermath Project. Founded to help change the way the media covers conflict – and to educate the public about the true cost of war and the real price of peace – The Aftermath Project has discovered some of the most groundbreaking photojournalists in the world – as well as internationally acclaimed photographers Stanley Greene, Nina Berman, Davide Monteleone, Justyna Mielnikiewicz, and Jim Goldberg, among many others – working on post-conflict themes.

The end of war does not mean peace. It is simply the end of war, the end of death and destruction. Every story of war includes a chapter that almost always goes untold – the story of the aftermath, which day by day becomes the prologue of the future.  Sara Terry (Founder of The Aftermath Project)

Aftermath: War Is Only Half the Story originated by The Aftermath Project, Los Angeles, and toured by Curatorial Assistance Traveling Exhibitions, Pasadena, California.
