On Tuesday, November 11, 2014, His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales arrived at Somerset House in London, England to view the photo exhibition, Wounded: The Legacy of War. The powerful images were photographed by Canadian singer, songwriter, and photographer, Mr. Bryan Adams.
According to the official website for Somerset House the exhibition showcases:
“…British servicemen and women who have suffered life-changing injuries on military duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Featuring over 30 portraits on public display for the first time in the UK, the startling series honors the war heroes of today and highlights the plight of wounded personnel.
The intimate portraits are striking and unsettling, since they do not shy away from the atrocities and aftermath of war. In them, the inspiring individuals show the same spirit of resolve, courageousness and camaraderie in civilian life as in service. Their searingly honest and heartfelt stories will share the wall space with their pictures to provide insights into the personal paths of conflict to recovery.”
Wounded: The Legacy of War will officially open on November 12, 2014 – January 25, 2015.
