Michael Kamber, a writer and photojournalist for over 25 years, who covered the Iraq War for the New York Times between 2003 and 2012, interviewed thirty-nine colleagues for the book, many of them from leading news organizations including Agence France-Presse, the Associated Press, the Guardian, the Los Angeles Times, Magnum, Newsweek, the New York Times, Paris Match, Reuters, Time, the Times of London, VII Photo Agency, and the Washington Post.
The photojournalists who documented the war in Iraq faced a new kind of urban warfare. To the roadside bombs, snipers, and Katyusha rockets, Iraq added assassins, kidnappers and deadly street mobs; each photographer soon became as much target as observer. Tellingly, more photojournalists were killed in Iraq than in any other modern conflict; hundreds were abducted and wounded, or narrowly escaped death. Despite the great personal risks, some stayed and worked amidst increasingly brutal conditions as the war escalated from “shock and awe” invasion, to occupation, to insurgency, to civil war. With visceral, previously unpublished photographs and eyewitness accounts by an incredibly diverse group of the world’s top news photographers, Photojournalists on War (University of Texas Press, May 2013) presents a groundbreaking new visual and oral history of America’s nine-year conflict in the Middle East.
The hard-hitting accounts of these practitioners would be rare in the annals of any war, yet here they reveal the inside and untold stories behind the headlines in Iraq. Each interview is logged with the year and location it took place, and is accompanied by a selection of the photographer’s work made on and off the battlefield.
The Photographers in Photojournalists on War are:
Lynsey Addario – Christoph Bangert – Patrick Baz – Nina Berman – Ben Brody – Andrea Bruce – Guy Calaf – Patrik Chauvel – Alan Chin – Carolyn Cole – Jerome Delay – Marco Di Lauro – Ashley Gilbertson – Stanley Greene – Todd Heisler – Tyler Hicks – Eros Hoagland – Chris Hondros – Ed Kashi – Karim Ben Khelifa – Wathiq Khuzaie – Gary Knight – Yuri Kozyrev – Rita Leistner – Benjamin Lowy – Zoriah Miller – Khalid Mohammed – John Moore – Peter Nicholls – Farah Nosh – Gilles Peress – Scott Peterson – Lucian Read – Eugene Richards – Ahmad Al-Rubaye – João Silva – Stephanie Sinclair – Bruno Stevens – Peter van Agtmael
