Exposing Conflict in the World, One Photograph at a Time


On November 20, 2006, the Museum projected wall-sized images of the escalating genocide in Darfur onto its facade, the first time the national memorial's exterior was used to highlight contemporary genocide. A unique and highly symbolic Museum project, the program was called "Darfur: Who Will Survive Today?" Appearing on the Museum's walls that night were images taken in Darfur and neighboring Chad by eight different photographers, including Istanbul-based photojournalist Lynsey Addario.

This past week, the MacArthur Foundation awarded Addario a $500,000 "genius grant" for her work in "exposing the tragic consequences of human conflict."

View Addario's photographs and others from that November night.
