How do we recognize a photograph of war? Is it possible to photograph the trauma that lingers in war's wake? This exhibition takes its title and its premise from Judith Butler’s book, Frames of War, in which she argues for the need to widen our range of recognition, both of war and of the vulnerability it produces. We need to see more. This does not mean that we need to see violence in more graphic detail. It means we need to understand the breadth of violence in its excruciatingly banal manifestations.
