War & Peace

War & Peace

Conflict and resolution, photography that documents the dynamic power-struggles in our world and conversely, the moments of calm.

Humankind is in a constant state of conflict. As described by the famous Karl Marx theory: society is in a state of perpetual conflict due to competition for limited resources. One can see that is true if you simply watch a broadcast news program.

From civil rights, to gay rights to global terrorism, our world is a bubbling cauldron of adversarial commotion. And it seems it has always been this way. History textbook pages merely skim the surface when if comes to wars and hypocrisy. Cultural misunderstandings, power-struggles and discrimination easily erupt into violence.

Darkroom Gallery is calling for photography that investigates the relationship between conflict and photography, exploring the types of photographs created during turmoil, as well the times of peace. We are interested in the progression of war: from the acts that instigate armed conflict to “the fight,” to victory and defeat, and photos that memorialize a time, its combatants, and its victims. Images playing with symbolism and allegory are well suited for this exhibit.

We ask you to think outside the box. This theme of conflict can be expressed intimately, quietly behind civilian curtains as well as on the battlefield.
