Conflict Zone

Friday, March 27, 2015 - 8:00am to Friday, April 3, 2015 - 5:00pm

“Conflict Zone” is a national photography exhibition showcasing dozens of images captured from the front lines of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

The traveling exhibit highlights the work of numerous photographers, including Bill Putnam and Chris Hondros, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated photojournalist who was killed while covering the Libyan Civil War in 2011. The exhibition features a variety of photographs showing what soldiers and journalists experience, ranging from turbulent battle scenes to intimate moments of everyday life.

Marine veteran Steve Danyluk and former Washington Post correspondent Jackie Spinner created “Conflict Zone” to help photographer João Silva, who lost both of his legs after stepping on a landmine in Afghanistan while on assignment for The New York Times in 2010. The exhibit has traveled to numerous cities, including New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C., generating critical acclaim and support for The Independence Fund, a volunteer nonprofit dedicated to serving the severely injured after they return home from war.

The “Conflict Zone” exhibit is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the First Amendment Forum, located on the second floor of the Cronkite School.
