UAMS hosts Iraq War photo exhibit

 The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health is hosting a traveling photo exhibit Jan. 30 to Feb. 15 to raise awareness of the Iraq war’s impact on public health.

Titled “Unembedded,” the 60-photograph exhibit is by four photojournalists – including Thorne Anderson, a Cabot High School graduate – whose rare access to everyday Iraqis allowed the photographers to capture provocative images without accompanying the U.S. military.

The exhibit is free and will be displayed on the first floor of the College of Public Health building. It can be viewed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 10-11. The exhibit also will appear at Philander Smith College in Little Rock, displayed in the Library and Technology Center from Feb. 20 to March 9.
