Images against War

“Friends, photographers and artists related in the past 25 years to Galerie Lichtblick and of festivals in Arles, Birmingham, Braga, Groningen, Houston, Perpignan, Plovdiv, Portland and their friends are invited to give their visual statement against war.”
In February 2003, Tina Schelhorn, curator, and director of Galerie Lichtblick in Cologne, Germany, sent this e-mail around the world to her friends in the photographic community. Two weeks later, a website was launched with the work of 200 artists, and an exhibition of 250 images hung in her gallery „Babylonian hanging style“.


Exhibition Images Against War at Gallery Lichtblick, Cologne, 2003

Densely displayed, the exhibition is an emphatic, yet nuanced, visual conversation about the causes and effects of conflict, wether large or small, and through photography reflects reality in a way no other two-dimensional medium can.


Philip Jones Griffith

Due to intense linking in the web the site had in March/April 2003 already 3 Mill. Hits and is constantly growing since. In nine years Images Against War that began as one woman's reaction to the US Invasion of Iraq, has grown to include the visual statements of more than 800 photographers from over 40 countries.
It also has evolved into a public projection and exhibition presented throughout Europe and America expanding with each presentation while absorbing contributions from regional photographers. Participants range from internationally renowned fine art photographers and Magnum photojournalists to students and archives with special themes like the Vietnam War.

Nigel Dickinson - Beyond Borders

Roma are a people whose history is not written within one country’s borders. They originated from India, traversing Asia as the Ottoman empire pushed towards Europe's frontiers. Enslaved by monasteries in Romania, many were later deported to the Americas. Their story is about diaspora, migration, persecution and ethnic cleansing. Sedentary or nomadic, they have a strong identity, with a rich and vibrant culture. They can be extravagant and ostentatious, though some in too many places, live in abject poverty.
