Blood and Honey

Amid the numerous photographs of the conflict in Yugoslavia, Newsweek photographer Ron Haviv’s work stands out as a unique record of the conflict, from its beginnings in 1991 to its eventual end with the arrest of Slobodan Milosevic in 2001.

From the front-line trenches to the refugees behind them, his images of poignant immediacy capture both the urgency and tragedy of war. The work is a powerful testimony to the suffering of the Balkan people. The Hague War Crimes Tribunal has used a number of Haviv’s images to examine the past.

Ron Haviv was the first of Western journalists to capture Serbian atrocities on film, photographs taken at the risk of his life and his dedication is considered outstanding for his long months and years spent on the ground to make the photographs in this extraordinary exhibit.
