Featuring: 10 years of grant winners and finalists from The Aftermath Project

“War is Only Half the Story” is a ten-year retrospective of the work of grant winners and finalists of the groundbreaking nonprofit, The Aftermath Project. Rather than presenting this decade of achievement as a chronological review, curators Sara Terry and Teun van der Heijden have framed the work using the poetry of Nobel Laureate Wislawa Szymborska, drawing from two of her post-conflict poems to create a completely fresh visual dialogue about aftermath issues. This is the first time the work will be shown in this form. A book of the work will be published with Dewi Lewis in November and a touring exhibition will launch in 2018.

    The Aftermath Project

    War is only half the story.

    Six words that are at the heart of the Aftermath Project.

    As a nonprofit, grant-making organization, we are committed to telling the other half of the story of conflict—the story of what it takes for individuals to learn to live again, to restore civil societies, and to address the lingering wounds of war while struggling to create new avenues for peace.

    The Aftermath Project’s core activity is our annual grant competition, open to working photographers worldwide. We amplify the work of our grant winners and finalists, and the aftermath issues they highlight, through our annual publication, educational outreach, exhibitions, workshops and lectures.
