Inspired by Robert Capa’s photography based on the Spanish Civil War, photographer Brendan Meadows together with Matt Robinson recapture the essence of the world’s first media war in an exhibition titled FRONTLINES as part of the Contact 2010 Photography Festival. The re-creation of former vintage war scenes highlights the fact that despite the current battles being fought across the world, there is a subsequent “disarming grace bound by unspeakable tragedy”. The FRONTLINES show opens on Wednesday, May 26th at the Steam Whistle Brewing Gallery in Toronto.

THE EXHIBITION
Overview

War embodies the ultimate failure of humanity. Yet it persists through generations; even today, images from Afghanistan present Canadians with irreconcilable feelings of resigned necessity and ethical horror. Robert Capa’s masterful photographs of The Spanish Civil War portrayed the brutality of battle while exposing a poignant yearning for civilian normalcy among its idealistic combatants.

Front Lines, inspired by Capa’s indelible scenes from the first ‘media war’, reminds us that the camaraderie of men drawn by a sense of duty to an imperfect moral calling can reveal fleeting moments of disarming grace bound by unspeakable tragedy.
