The exhibit Alyssa Banta: Photographs from the Periphery of War opened on Jan. 15 at The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) in McAllen. The exhibition, Photographs from the Periphery of War, by award winning documentary photographer, Alyssa Banta, will be on display through May 3. The exhibition displays a collection of photographs taken in Asia, and allows the viewer to experience the countless issues snarled together in war. Banta states, “My photographs aren’t about the bang-bang of war. Not directly anyway. They’re about the people who have to make a life out of the destruction, the mess, the collapse, the broken roads, the fields littered with mines.”
