Eye Level in Iraq: Photographs by Kael Alford and Thorne Anderson

February 9, 2013June 16, 2013

This exhibition presents the photographs of Kael Alford (American, b. 1971) and Thorne Anderson (American, b. 1966), two American-trained photo journalists who documented the impact and aftermath of the US-led allied invasion of Iraq in 2003. They made these photographs during a two-year span that began in the months leading up to the allied invasion in spring 2003 and covers the emergence of the armed militias that challenged the allied forces and later the new central Iraqi government.

Location 

This exhibition is organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and draws upon works generously loaned by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta.
