June 7 – July 28, 2018
A 2017-18 Unsolicited Exhibition Program exhibition
Light in Wartime explores the relationship between light and photography in the context of war. The show presents photographers whose work addresses and employs the blackout darkness and precarious light conditions characteristic of a life under siege. Photographs are made from sniper holes, debris, moonlight, dioramas of memory-scapes, and imagined or remembered narratives. Light, whether it be a source of illumination, on the metaphoric or technical level, is the impetus behind the creation of the photographs, bringing forth new dimensions on the representation of war.
