Afterwar: Veterans from a World in Conflict   exhibition by Lori Grinker
Contents & Specs

The exhibition showcases fifty-one digital fine-art chromogenic prints, including seven large-size images and several archival photographs from the veterans' own albums. An introductory text panel by Robert Pledge deals with the relationship between war and photography, and a text panel by journalist Chris Hedges provides a historical and philosophical context. Each of the images — photographed in subdued color to convey a contemporaneous, everyday reality devoid of mythology or sentimentalism — is accompanied by caption information and brief excerpts from Grinker's interviews with her subjects.

I am enormously moved and impressed by Lori Grinker’s work. It parallels closely much that I have written about, and conveys powerfully the principle of what I call a “species mentality,” an outlook and sense of self bound up with a strong awareness of being part of humankind.
