NYC Fire Museum hosts ‘groundbreaking’ look at war

Conflict Zone, a unique exhibition of civilian and military journalists will open with a reception on Friday, February 10, from 6-9 PM.

After New York Times photographer Joao Silva was injured in October 2010, more than 20 combat journalists pooled their images from Iraq and Afghanistan to create “Conflict Zone,” the first collaboration of its kind.

Both civilian and military journalists are represented in the exhibit, including several currently deployed or on assignment.

Contributors to Conflict Zone (www.conflictzone.org) feature the late Chris Hondros and awardwinners Andrea Bruce, Jeff Newton, Greg Marinovich, Jason P. Howe and Kathleen Flynn. The work exhibited in Conflict Zone first appeared in the New York Times, Getty Images, the Washington Post, CBS News, the San Antonio-Express News, U.S. News & World Report, the St. Petersburg Times and USA Today.

Hondros was one of the key supporters of Conflict Zone before he was killed in Libya in April 2011 while on assignment for Getty Images. The exhibit, which is dedicated to Hondros, will feature additional images from him for the New York City show through the fund established in his memory (www.chrishondrosfund.org).
