SPECS Child Soldiers

PROOF_ProjectTitles_All_Child Soldiers.jpg


PROOF’s "Child Soldiers: Forced to be Cruel" exhibit is based on a book by Leora Kahn. It features forty photographs taken by talented and devoted photographers that depict child soldiers from around the world, who have been manipulated by war criminals and subjected to unspeakable violence. Their faces show the reality of lost childhood. The frivolity, joy, defiance, or rebellion of youth is replaced by the deadly seriousness of a gun-toting teenager. This is an internationally traveled exhibition that has been shown at the Capitoline Museum in Rome, Italy; the Bonn Kunstmusem in Bonn, Germany; and the U.N. in New York City. It will also be traveling to South Africa, Canada, Spain, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
