Photography and War: History, Technology, and Imaging Conflict

Photography has changed perceptions of war since the mid-19th century, with shifts in technological innovation, ideological application, and artistic expression. We explore how famous, lesser-known, and anonymous photographers have used the medium to report and preserve stories of conflict impacting soldiers, civilians, and the environment. Examine images (iconic and not) of documentary and portraiture, propaganda and surveillance, resistance and revolution, and memory and survival.
