UPFRONT: War Photojournalists

The DOX Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague is exhibiting the work of 23 photojournalists, many of whom have received a Pulitzer Prize or a World Press Photo award. The exhibition is a stark survey of the lives of people in today's conflict zones.

The name of the project, UPFRONT, refers to the dangerous front lines where these photojournalists work. Their courage enables viewers to witness events unfolding as if they were present themselves. Often, war photographers are freelancers without any institutional support who set out for the most dangerous conflict zones, such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Congo, Libya, or Haiti, in order to bear witness.
