West Papua

Photographs by Ben Bohane

1 April 2024 - 31 Oct 2024

West Papua is the western half of New Guinea island, the largest tropical island and second largest island in the world.

West Papua remains one of the world’s forgotten conflicts, where a 60 year ‘slow motion genocide’ of its indigenous people by Indonesia continues with impunity.

Congratulations! War Photo Limited has won a 2021 

Experts' Choice Award.

The award reflects outstanding reviews in leading travel guides, magazines and newspapers.

“The world's only exhibition space devoted to war photography.” - Concierge

Experts' Choice is the only accolade based on professional reviews. It's awarded to fewer than 2% of eligible businesses and recognizes War Photo Limited as one of the very best attractions in Dubrovnik.

The photographs, brilliantly lighted on dark walls, range from the violent to the absurd. They include pictures of dozens of bodies, victims of the shelling of a Croatian city; artillery fire painting bright orange lines in the night sky; and a Serbian policeman offering water to an elderly Kosovar Albanian as his colleagues burn the old man's village down.

Check out the city's best photo-journalism gallery

The exciting modern gallery War Photo Limited is dedicated to photo-journalism from global war zones, and attempts to offer unbiased reporting with a human element. Dubrovnik's sturdy fortifications have been put to the test several times during the centuries, most recently during the bloody break-up of Yugoslavia – and indeed, on the second floor, there's a permanent exhibition devoted to photos from the war.

The Green Guide **

This exhibition space seeks to raise awareness and teach us about war photography. The idea is to show war as it really is - raw, corrupt and terrifying, as seen through the eyes of famous photographers, and stripped bare of aesthetics or ideology. The exhibitions address depictions of war around the world by exploring their similarities and differences, from Afghanistan to Sierra Leone, via Iraq and... Croatia.

Trip Advisor *****

Really powerful images not just of war in the region but from around the world. Well worth spending some time here when you’re in Dubrovnik. One of the highlights of our trip.

Stark images by some of the world's best war photographers went on permanent display this week in Dubrovnik, stripping away Hollywood's gloss on war and the euphemisms of leaders who try to sanitise it. The War Photo exhibition is a vision of human conflict in the modern age that early visitors have called powerful, painful, beautiful, brutal, courageous and indispensable.
