War through the lens
Dubrovnik’s best gallery has a global focus.
Portraits of Iraq, Afghanistan, the recent Lebanon conflict - these are the themes for 2007 at Dubrovnik’s striking contemporary gallery, War Photo Limited. Its vital venue, not just in local terms but, because of what it displays, internationally. The fact that many of its exhibitions tour is most appropriate.
Devotedly managed since its opening in 2003 by New Zealand war photographer Wade Goddard who came here in the early 1990s and stayed, the gallery could have easily limited its focus to the conflict going on here in the city. But Goddard quickly expanded its remit to exhibit work by some of the world’s leading exponents of this brave art, illustrating flash points around the world.
Much thought, guided by a photographers eye, is given to space and light. WPL has a contemplative atmosphere; you feel miles away from the Stradun crowds. The two-floor venue is practical, too, doubling up as a conference centre in the off months of January and February.
The first floor houses the current exhibition. The second is home to highlights from previous shows and, of course, the 1990s war in Yugoslavia. Viewing images of shells and fires raging in the Old Town, a place that today seems completely serene but for the constant patter of tourists’ footsteps, is disconcerting. You can even and watch slow-paced slide shows on large TV screens. Beware - it’s not easy viewing. The 2006 exhibition on Liberia was the hardest hitting yet: a photograph of a decapitated head produced audible gasps. Do not let this put you off - these images are real, the wars and the victims are real, and this is what we now term ‘collateral damage’. It is steeling, challenging but ultimately positive, and you leave feeling very lucky and energised to help. Photojournalist have risked their lives to deliver these images. Work is sold as limited edition prints for 10,000kn (1,350 euros). You can also not comments in the visitors’ book. ‘It moved me beyond words’ is typical.
