Jonathan Alpeyrie‘s exhibition World War II Veterans is currently on view at Anastasia Photo. His documentation spans 62 nations and features a powerful selection of diptychs of veterans from opposing sides in the war. He hopes to publish a book as one way to possibly reunite veterans from these different nationalities. Anastasia-Photo specializes documentary photography and photojournalism, and connects its exhibitions to philanthropic organizations that are in some way related to each show. For Alpeyrie’s exhibition, the gallery has selected to support  Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
