As horrifying as war is, there is no arguing the fact that much great art has arisen from its ashes: Homer’s Iliad , Tolstoy’s War and Peace , Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five  in literature, Picasso’s Guernica , Goya’s The Disasters of War  in visual art, Grand Illusion  and Apocalypse Now  in cinema, but no medium has captured war, and all its chaos and misery and valor, the way photography has.
This Veteran’s Day, November 11, The Museum of Fine Arts – Houston  will debut the exhibition, WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath . Spanning 165 years and six continents, the exhibit explores the experience of war through the eyes of photographers.
The exhibition runs November 11, 2012 – February 3, 2013. For ticket information and a schedule of events visit www.mfah.org .
