War embodies the ultimate failure of humanity. Yet it persists through generations; even today, images from Afghanistan present Canadians with irreconcilable feelings of resigned necessity and ethical horror. Robert Capa's masterful photographs of The Spanish Civil War portrayed the brutality of battle while exposing a poignant yearning for civilian normalcy among its idealistic combatants. Front Lines, inspired by Capa's indelible scenes from the first 'media war', reminds us that the camaraderie of men drawn by a sense of duty to an imperfect moral calling can reveal fleeting moments of disarming grace bound by unspeakable tragedy.
