This week on Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up – Ron Haviv’s exhibition Liberty showcases images never before seen from the Bosnian War.
Plus there are a few copies left in the third print run of Canadian photographer Gunar Roze’s MANHATTAN 1982. I bought this book last year and have thoroughly enjoyed this quirky time capsule that takes you to the streets of NYC. It held a personal fascination for me given that I first visited the city in 1983. Roze rediscovered these images thirty years after he’d taken them. Click here to find out more.
Liberty – Ron Haviv
Award-winning photojournalist and co-founder of VII is perhaps most well-known for his photographs of the Bosnian war, some of which were used as evidence in International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague.
Haviv’s images of prisoner exchanges and prisons, many of which have never been shown, were showcased this month at OKC Abrašević in the historic city of Mostar in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Haviv was in attendance for the opening. In the video below he talks about his experience documenting this conflict. Haviv’s images confirm the significance of photography as a means of evidence and of remembrance. And as the photographer suggests, hopefully as a warning.
