 TONIGHT is the release party for the late photojournalist Chris Hondros’ book Testament, which will take place at the Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn. The book includes work spanning over a decade; it includes images from Afghanistan, to the West Bank, from Libya to Egypt, all of which capture the human element of international conflict. As his website notes, in his photographs we see “a jubilant Liberian rebel fighter exalt during a firefight, a U.S. Marine remove Saddam Hussein’s portrait from an Iraqi classroom, American troops ride confidently in a thin-skinned unarmored Humvee during the first months of the Iraq war”. This book is the most thorough complication of the Pulitzer Prize nominated photographer's work to date.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 9th at 7:00pm - 9:00pm
