The topic Women and War has taken photographer Marissa Roth to many countries over a time span of 28 years. In addition to the photographs, the exhibition features the stories of the women portrayed and how the war irrevocably altered their lives.
“This project brought me face to face with hundreds of women, who endured the war and the related experience of loss, pain and unimaginable hardship and how they survived it. I traveled around the world, photographing and interviewing women, recording their history, capturing gestures and gruesome details to document how war has altered their lives irrevocably. I was compelled to give faces and voices to war seen from the women’s perspective. In the photos there are no signs of blood or weapons. They only show life, lived with an eternal postwar backdrop.“ Marissa Roth
