War/Photography: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath” examines the experience of war through the eyes of 280 photographers, spanning six continents. This unprecedented exhibition includes 480 pictures recorded from 1846 to the present day.

The subject matter reveals the progression of war–from instigation, to battle, to victory and defeat–through memorials during armed conflicts both global and local in scale. “WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY” comprises iconic images as well as previously unknown pictures, taken by military photographers, commercial photographers (portrait and photojournalist), amateurs and artists.

This exhibition is organized by Anne Wilkes Tucker, the MFAH Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator of Photography, with MFAH colleagues Will Michels and Natalie Zelt. After the Houston presentation, the exhibition travels to the Annenberg Space for Photography, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Brooklyn Museum.
