Exhibition: Year Four, Day One - Photos from the War in Iraq

Late this afternoon I received this e-vite to the opening of this exhibition - "Year Four, Day One" - which is being held this evening. Unfortunately, I cannot attend. New York is a much bigger state than many people realize. Anyhow, if I went, who else would sit and listen to my 13 year old son Jeff practice his trumpet? So while I do that I can call the exhibition to your attention.

The exhibition is hung at The Photographic Gallery at 252 Front Street in lower Manhattan (next to the Fulton Fish Market). The opening is set to coincide with the third anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq. It includes work by four photographers: Ghaith Abdul-Ahad (Iraq), Rita Leistner (Canada), Thorne Anderson (USA) and Kael Alford (USA). Photos are selected from their joint book, "Unembedded: Four Independent Photojournalists on the War in Iraq" which I posted about here last November. The work by these photographers is terrific and only becomes more forceful over time as the administration pursues its bloody and deceitful and futile policy in Iraq. Go if you can. The exhibition is scheduled to run from 18 March through 30 April.
