Unforgettable Images of War

An exhibition of photographs chronicling a century and a half of conflict documented by the International Committee of the Red Cross is currently being held at the Kidapawan City Hall.

The exhibit offers a unique and first-hand look at what war and armed violence do to people’s lives – from the heartbreaking loneliness of an elderly woman made homeless by last year’s war between Georgia and Russia to the unbridled joy of two brothers reunited after being separated by fighting in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Forty unforgettable images of war-torn Afghanistan, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Georgia, Haiti, Lebanon, Liberia, and the Philippines by renowned war photographers Ron Haviv, James Nachtwey, Antonin Kratochvil, Franco Pagetti and Christopher Morris will be on display.
