Devastating photos capture the aftermath of war



US Bombing on Taliban Positions, by Luc Delahaye -- one of the photos from the exhibit
LONDON —From the jungles of Vietnam to the mountains of Afghanistan, for decades photographers have captured both conflict itself — and what remains in the aftermath of battle.
In Conflict, Time, Photography, which has just opened at the Tate Modern in London, a new exhibition looks at the aftermath: from the seconds after a bomb is detonated to the scene of a battle many years later.
The exhibition coincides with the centenary of the beginning of World War I.
Here are 12 photographs from the exhibit:
