"Afterwar" documents the physical and psychological wounds of the 20th century's frontline veterans, from World War I to Iraq, as well as many others at the front lines that have been personally affected by armed conflict. The voices of the people that are the subjects of Grinker's works accompany the images in captions for the exhibition, providing a riveting combination that demonstrates the many ways in which the effects of war continue long after the fighting stops.
