An exhibition exploring conflict photography runs through March 15th at the Tate Modern in London. From images taken seconds after the explosion of a bomb, to battlegrounds seen years later, to victims, symbolic still lifes and objects of war, Conflict, Time, Photography features work ranging from the American Civil War to the current Syrian Civil War, shot by the likes of Don McCullin, Luc Delahaye, Simon Norfolk, Susan Meiselas, Stephen Shore, Jo Ractliffe, Michael Schmidt and many others.
The most outstanding work is some of the least known, including a large color series, Fait, by French artist Sophie Ristelhueber, produced seven months after the First Gulf War. Libyan photographer Diana Matar documents her country’s torture dungeons left after the fall of Gaddafi in 2012. Then there’s a poignant piece by English artist Chloe Dewe Mathews, who visited sites from the First World War where young soldiers were executed for the crimes of desertion and mutiny.
