    A collaboration of the work of many photographers including serving and former soldiers, the main purposes of this exhibition is to help raise consciousness and awareness in the public of the opposition to wars, the plight of the people in war torn countries, the real reasons behind wars, the effects of war and also to show the situations soldiers find themselves in. Many of the images come from war zones including Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine.

    This photo documentary is regularly updated with images from conflict situations around the world and further showings are planned in countries that have any involvement in any wars or the arms industry. The exhibition tour will include many Irish locations so as to highlight the use of Shannon Airport by the US military and the manufacture of weapons components in north and south of Ireland. It will also inform Irish taxpayers in particular, how some of our taxes are being used and will raise questions about our so called military neutrality.
    Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick, Mayo, Derry and Belfast are some of the locations planned for the exhibition in 2010.

    Donations are welcome to help fund the tour of this important and exceptional body of work.

    All the photographers go through risks in capturing some of the images and do it mainly out of their passion for photojournalism and generally at their own expenses. Any finance accrued through sales of prints etc, goes back into maintaining the exhibition, such as reframing/ reprinting where neccessary, general printing and carriage/ travel costs etc. This project is not for profit.

    Image contributers to date are photographers, Zoriah Miller, Michael Gallagher, Geróid O’Loingsigh, Guy Smallman, Paula Geraghty, Paul Mattsson, serving and former soldiers (who wish to remain anonymous)

    The work has been shown a number of times since 2005 and many thanks to those who have sponsored or assisted us so far:
