    The Real Image of War: Steichen and Ford in the Pacific

    The camera’s use of chemistry and mechanics married with the human perspective created one of the most powerful tools of war and art—and an invaluable resource for recording the memory of World War II. By demonstrating the technology of the camera, using dramatic imagery and footage of everything from combat to the ordinary life of the US Navy sailor, The Real Image of War will probe the supposed objectivity of documentary photography and examine the motives of the men behind the camera who created a visual record of the war in the Pacific. The Real Image of War will be on display March 17, 2022 – January 3, 2023 in the Senator John Alario, Jr. Special Exhibit Hall.
