The Wounded

February 15 to June 2, 2019

Striking black-and-white portraits of 18 Canadian veterans of the war in Afghanistan, by photojournalist Stephen J. Thorne, illustrate stories of loss, recovery and hope. Through images and accompanying text, the soldiers relate their struggle to heal, despite the vital support of family and friends. Some knew instantly that their lives would be forever changed, while others realized it only long after the fact. All carry scars — some visible, others invisible. Developed by the Canadian War Museum in partnership with Legion Magazine, this moving exhibition takes an unflinching look at the struggles and hopes of Canadian veterans injured in recent years.
