We are familiar with her photographs without being aware of it. They have appeared on the front pages of daily newspapers and the covers of magazines, and have influenced our image of crises and wars. Anja Niedringhaus (1965–2014) documented military conflicts, political disputes, and social hardship with haunting imagery. She began working for the Associated Press in 2002, primarily in Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, and the Gaza Strip. In April 2014, while reporting on the presidential election in Afghanistan, Niedringhaus fell victim to an assassination. The publication shows life in times of war, exhausted soldiers, desperate prisoners, but also laughter and a zest for life in the midst of suffering. The out-of-print volume from 2011 is now being republished with a new foreword. Texts on the subject of the war image as well as reflections on visual theory and extensive captions make it an important contemporary document. Exhibition: Museum Pfalzgalerie Kaiserslautern 1.2.–26.4.2015Anja Niedringhaus (*1965 in Höxter, Westphalia), first based in Frankfurt/Main for the European Pressphoto Agency (EPA), moved to Geneva, Switzerland, in 2002, for the Associated Press (AP). Working on the front line of every mayor conflict. In addition, photographs of sporting and political events. Recipient of national and international grants, including, both in 2005, the Pulitzer and the Courage in Journalism Award from the International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF).
