          In Love and War exhibition reflects on the fragility of human life, in the hopes of bringing the viewer to a place of compassion and solicitude. This exhibition features photographers Milagros de la Torre, Henry Jacobson, Richard Mosse, Jessica Hines, Justin Maxon and Grant Worth. Curator Adriana Teresa depicts a contemporary society in which the interceptive space between war and love converge. The roles assumed and tools required by professionals on duty become necessary to the survival and protection of civilians. The soldier becomes the civilian and vice versa; the injured veteran reenacts being a soldier at war; and the passerby becomes part of the exhibition. Coexisting is a war that is portrayed as an external and internal conflict challenging the boundaries between love and war, and, our perception of privacy.
