Histories are Mirrors: The Path of Conflict Through Afghanistan and Iraq, Photographs by Tyler Hicks

  September 26 – December 22, 2005

The exhibition features the work of award-winning photojournalist Tyler Hicks, whose photographs of the conflict-filled regions of Afganistan and Iraq have made history as well as recorded it.

This extraordinary compilation of documentary photographs taken over the last several years shows us the war up close—soldiers from all sides, in battle and the bloody aftermath, destroyed cities, palaces and archeological treasures, refugees and battered civilians Hicks photographs capture how the stark but dignified realities of everyday life coexist with pathos and grace during the conflict and its aftermath.

Histories are Mirrors is a traveling exhibition organized and circulated by Umbrage Editions. Special thanks to Nan Richardson, curator, and Launa Buehler, director of exhibitions.

The accompanying publication, published by Umbrage Editions will be available for sale.

This presentation at the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery is sponsored in part by an arts program grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of Maryland and the National Endowment for the Arts; the Baltimore County Commission on Arts & Sciences; and the Friends of the Library & Gallery.
