War Museum

As a direct response to 9/11, 2001,
Afghanistan erupted into a violent battle zone.
Journalists Stephen Thorne and Garth Pritchard’s
emotionally provoking images,
"Afghanistan: A Glimpse of War,"
are now on display
at the Canadian War Museum, 1 Vimy Place.
 January 2008

Stephen Thorne and Garth Pritchard

Writer/photographer Thorne and documentary filmmaker Pritchard’s images are different from what you see on television or read in the papers.  The images will haunt you, but you will also witness the humanity of the people involved in wars.  Not everyone wants peace,
but there are glimpses of those who would do anything to obtain it.

The exhibition is a collection of personal stories
about life and death, focusing on
Canada’s military mission in a
country ravaged by destruction for over 25 years.
