This weekend, a new exhibition, called WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY, opened at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.

The exhibit encompasses more than 150 images of war that range from 1887 to the present.

Among the photos included are ones shot by Ashley Gilbertson - an Australian photographer known for his work on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

He has since produced a series called Bedrooms of the Fallen, photographing the bedrooms of fallen soldiers.
