galleryDK Presents Intersections – Documenting the Horror of War

Bosnia in the 1990s and the Eastern Congo in the 2000s: both involved relatively small gangs of non-professional soldiers engaged in low-intensity fighting over material resources. These "wars" are basically robberies - coded in flags, religion, and race. Both conflicts adversely affected large civilian populations through displacement, rape, starvation and disease.

galleryDK is mounting a photographic show examining the similarity in the emotional and psychological degradation caused by violence. Alex Henry Moore has taken his camera to these different countries and returned with images of children, women, and men - combatant and civilian acting out their roles on war's stage. While fifteen years and five thousand kilometers separate Moore's photographs, they depict universal and timeless experiences.

"The world has seen so much conflict and hatred, yet so many of us are unaware of what has happened – and is continuing to happen. The horror of ethic cleansing through rape, forced relocation… we cannot turn away, we must confront it. This show will be horrifying, but some of the imagery is so beautiful. We invite the viewer to make their own decisions," said Laurin Jeffrey, one of the gallery owners.

Encountering Moore's images forces the viewer to assume a personal, moral, private, stance: the way of seeing the photograph will shape the relationship with the subject. When regarding the pain of others, interpretation will range from exploitation to consecration. Above all else, as stark documentary corroboration of crimes, Moore's images retain simple evidentiary power.
