"War and Peace"

"War and Peace"

Photography by Jayel Aheram

October 9th-26th

“The Harsh Desert” is a tale in photographs. Jayel Aheram presents a collection of things seen, experienced, and lived while serving in the harsh deserts of Iraq and elsewhere. A unique view of events rarely seen in the nightly newscast, a point-of-view of one troop in a war zone and at home, and a glimpse of a vastly different and sometimes beautiful Iraq.

Following on from the tremendous success of his February’s hit solo show and his participation in Art4aCure, US marine Jayel Aheram returns with a new show and new incredible photographs. Jayel has recently returned from a tour of duty and will be joining us.

“The Harsh Desert” will be one of the most talked-about shows of the season, so you cannot afford to miss it!
