In 2003, Fotografos Contra la Guerra (Fotographers against the War) was born in reaction to the invasion of Iraq which turned into a catastrophe for the Iraqi people and the consequences of which affect millions of innocent victims nowadays.
Back then, hundreds of people sent their photographs combining their professional, informative and creative capabilities to send a clear and strong message: “NO to War”.
Given the terrible situation of the people who live every day under the threat of bombs, the ones who look for shelter or drown in the Mediterranean Sea, today we say again: NO to THEIR war, NOT in OUR name.
This is the reason why this new initiative is launched.
Photos Against the War is a webpage with images loaned by photojournalists and professional photographers to express our rejection to war and our commitment to truthful and evidence-based information.
