The Evacuation - Paolo Pellegrin, Magnum
As part of Paolo Pellegrin's ongoing Israel and Palestine project, in The Evacuation we are unusually confronted with images of conflict between Israeli soldiers and Israeli civilians. This Magnum photoessay documents the evacuation of Kfar Darom, a devout and ideologically staunch Israeli settlement, during the period of the planned evacuation of Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip and West Bank in 2005.

Bangkok Unrest
Images from eight international photo-journalists documenting the conflict in Bangkok in 2010. Protests initiated by the National United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship led to a violent military crackdown in what the Thai media called "Cruel April" and "Savage May". The horrors brought about by a tyrannical military force are shown here. Soundtrack by Funki Porcini. Curated by Françoise Callier.
