Typepad Import Image

** After you New Yorkers vote on Tuesday be sure to check out the effects of the foreign policy this country voted into office in 2000 and 2004 at the Pomegranite Gallery, which is currently showing images of Iraq and the people unlucky enough to be living there over the past three years.

Farah Nosh**, who took this image, gets top billing because she first tipped us off to the show, but it also features fine work by two other not-so-shabby photojournalists: Tyler Hicks of The New York Times and Time magazine’s Yuri Kozyrev. Simple titled “Iraq: Contemporary Viewpoints,” the exhibition also features paintings and sculpture by Iraqi artists, and the rare Tuesday night opening likely means you won’t have to scratch and claw your way to the bar.
