Larry Towell, Donovan Wylie: Afghanistan

Donovan Wylie (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

Joint Exhibition at Royal Ontario Museum , Toronto including works from Wylie's photographic series Outposts

This arresting exhibition brings together recent work by two acclaimed Magnum photographers exploring the ongoing armed conflict in Afghanistan. Canadian Larry Towell's gritty, intimate black and white photographs reveal the devastating effects of the war on citizens, soldiers, and the urban and rural landscapes. Donovan Wylie's large-scale colour photographs of military architecture and vast empty landscapes were taken while the British artist was imbedded with Canadian peacekeeping forces in Kandahar province. Together, these dramatic images speak volumes about the troubling social and political realities of present-day Afghanistan.
