Viewing war through the lens of a camera afforded Frank Braden an unyielding eye, though his photography is not documentation or a straight retention of a moment. Rather, he tries to evoke a mood. Braden's pictures often depict places of transition -- doors, walkways, the movement of the city at night. Though these places hold their own energy, the life of the moment is really captured through the harmony, and disharmony, of color and black and white.
