The American Soldier 

When: June 13-Sept. 13 2009
Phone: 719/867-6635
Price: $4-$6

It's hard to know why war photography is so intriguing, and why certain images of terror and hopelessness mature into cultural icons. Aggressively frank photos of tearful soldiers in a foxhole, or indifferent infantrymen sauntering past a blazing oilfield are obviously meaningful, but why so strangely beautiful? Decide for yourself at The American Soldier: A Photographic Tribute, which opens today at the Phil Long Expo Center (1515 Auto Mall Loop,, and features a collection of 116 photographs from the Civil War to the current situations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tickets run between $4 and $6 per person. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays, through Sept. 13. — Edie Adelstein
