Conflict, Time Photography - Tate modern

Conflict, Time Photography; Tate Modern

I don't normally enjoy photography exhibitions as I react more to sculptural exhibitions and those with a performative focus. Again I was not fully interested in this exhibition; only for the concept, I liked the idea of photography depicting conflict, its results and the rebuilding after conflict, the idea was compelling and I did feel quite moved by some of the photographs. For example From the weeds of Hiroshima by Joao Penalva depicting imprints of people and wildlife left in Hiroshima by the light from the nuclear explosion; I liked this because it was made from real things and depicted something really sinister and heartbreaking in a beautiful way with a sort of calm after the storm tone.
