Learn about the relationship between photography and the sites of wartime violence at Conflict, Time, Photography, a compelling exhibition at Tate Modern.

Planned to coincide with the anniversary centenary of the First World War, this exhibition acknowledges that the concept of time itself is a part of the photographic process.

Visitors here are encouraged to consider the different perspectives that the photographer brings to the sites that they record.

The images on display all vary in the length of time they were taken after the conflict, with some shots taken just a few moments after and others taken many years later. Subjects included are worldwide, covering wars from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries – each with their own grim themes of destruction, reconstruction and the human cost of conflict.
