HOUSTON, TX - Houston Center for Photography is proud to present the exhibition, Soldier, at Ease. Through the work of Tim Hetherington, Louie Palu, and Erin Trieb, this exhibition looks at how active soldiers spend their private time “at ease,” while they are off duty, and also after they return home. Photographs and videos by these three photographers, as well as images created by active duty soldiers themselves, illustrate a more personal experience of the solder as an individual.
The exhibition directly coincides with the encyclopedic exhibition WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath presented by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, which also includes work by Hetherington, Palu, and Trieb. HCP’s exhibition is on view through January 6, 2013 and is organized by Executive Director Bevin Bering Dubrowski, Curator Libbie J. Masterson, and the HCP Exhibitions Committee.
