Oregon State University Alumnus David Gilkey was one of the world’s top conflict photographers when he was killed by the Taliban in June, 2016 while covering the war in Afghanistan for National Public Radio (NPR). Gilkey managed to celebrate the humanity of individuals in work that chronicled our collective inhumanity, from the genocide in Rwanda and famine in Somalia, to the ward in Gaza, Iraq, Afghanistan and the Balkans.
A native of Portland, Gilkey is best known for his award winning conflict photography. This exhibition is a representation of some of the best of his beautiful and harrowing work.
