Former combat photographer, Michael Kamber will be having his first solo show titled “Portraits of Survival” in 25 years. On display at the Bronx Art Space from August 14-30th will be a collection of medium format images he took in the “quiet moments, when major combat had ended or in the lull between battles.”
The intense and emotional portraits show the civilians affected by the wars in Afghanistan, Nigeria, Iraq, and other conflict-ridden countries. Quiet and reflective, these portraits show a completely different aspect of war photography than we are accustomed to viewing. Thirty of these previously unseen photographs will be on view accompanying a body of work composed of Kamber’s landscapes of the Bronx in the 1980s.
Come out to support award winning journalist Michael Kamber at the opening reception of “Portraits of Survival” on August 14th at 6:00pm. Signed copies of his acclaimed book Photojournalists on War: The Untold Stories from Iraq, featuring the work of many photojournalists including Ed Kashi (VII), will be available at the opening.
