“The end of war does not mean peace. It is simply the end of war, the end of death and destruction.
Every story of war includes a chapter that almost always goes untold - the story of the aftermath,
which day by day becomes the prologue of the future.”
– Sara Terry, Founder of The Aftermath Project
Aftermath: War is Only Half the Story tells the incredibly moving stories of the people left behind after the cameras have moved on from a war zone. Drawing on photographs from over fifty photographers, these personal and often poetic post-war views unveil not only another side to the devastating effects of war, but also tell the stories of people coming together to rebuild and heal. Aftermath: War is Only Half the Story illumines and defines our humanity, while giving visibility to those coping with the lingering ramifications of conflict.
The exhibition is a ten-year retrospective of the work of the groundbreaking documentary photography program The Aftermath Project. Founded to help change the way the media covers conflict, and to educate the public about the true cost of war and the real price of peace, The Aftermath Project has discovered some of the most groundbreaking photojournalists in the world – as well as internationally acclaimed photographers – working on post-conflict themes.
