HOUSTON - An exhibit of more than 400 war photographs is debuting at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.

"WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath" opens Sunday, Veterans Day. Later, it will travel to The Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington and The Brooklyn Museum in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The exhibit includes famous images, such as one by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal of U.S. Marines raising the American flag on Iwo Jima in 1945.

Co-curators Anne Wilkes Tucker and Will Michels say the exhibit includes 480 objects by 280 photographers from 26 countries.
