Visual art: 2004: Atlanta to Baghdad 

Thurs., Nov. 6

Here's a sobering thought: The 11- and 12-year-old Iraqi boys in Manuel Llaneras' 2004 photographs currently at the Seen Gallery are now all 15 and 16 years old – most of their adolescence spent in the shadow of war. Llaneras documents the ruin wrought by the Iraq invasion in 2004: ATLANTA TO BAGHDAD, continuing Thurs., NOV. 6. Llaneras, a native of Cuba, traveled to the war-torn region, recording the tragic devastation as well as the hopeful glimmers of mundane normalcy that somehow survived. Also recorded were protests in Atlanta both for and against the conflict raging a world away. Through Dec. 3. Free. Tues.-Thurs., 6-9 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 2-9 p.m.; Sun., noon-5 p.m. 321 W. Hill St., Decatur. 404-377-0733. www.theseengallery.com.
