For almost a quarter of a century, Anja Niedringhaus (1965-2014) reported from theatres of war across the world, such as the Balkans, Iraq, and repeatedly Afghanistan. When the photographer and Pulitzer Prize winner fell victim to an assassination there while deployed on a reportage on 4 April 2014, she left behind an impressive oeuvre. The first posthumous retrospective to mark the 5th anniversary of her death presents - for the first time consistently in color - over 90 large format photographs, including 18 original prints from the photographer's archive and several autographed prints.
