Learn about the harsh realities of war through the eyes of photographers at this eye-opening exhibit of photos, organized by the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Walk among more than 150 images, taken from 1887 onward, arranged by theme to show the full spectrum of war from the instigating acts to the memorials. See pictures ranging from the Mexican-American War to present-day conflicts from both soldier and civilian points of view. Exclusive to the Annenberg space is an original short documentary, The War Photographers, and a digital image presentation produced by Arclight Productions. Catch the IRIS lecture nights that will accompany the exhibit, starting on opening night with a discussion about the installation.
