Summary "Conflict photographers are visual historians, bearing witness to stories that must be told. The images they produce seize our attention, and moved by what we see troubling questions come to mind. What has become of these victims of war whose plight has been so memorably captured on camera? How did human behavior turn so dark? Shooting War builds on this narrative by asking a different set of questions that to date has received little, if any, attention. What of the person taking the photograph? What might they have experienced? Neuropsychiatrist Anthony Feinstein provides the answers in a series of essays, one each for eighteen of the world's preeminent conflict photographers. Complementing each essay is a single, iconic photograph around which the text is built. The photojournalists and in the case of those deceased, with relatives and close friends, gives new and revealing insights into those factors, professional and psychological that motivate photographers to repeatedly enter zones of conflict and the consequences that come from exposure to grave danger. These may include grievous physical injury, PTSD, moral injury and prolonged bereavement for colleagues lost. What emerges from these interviews and analyses is a different, unique appreciation of the world of the war and conflict photographer. In addition to opening a new line of investigation into photographers and conflict, the book includes a definitive foreword by Sir Harold Evans, himself a world-renowned commentator on conflict and photography. A comprehensive index of photographer biographies and the wars and conflicts they have photographed is cited. This ground-breaking book will stir interest in the essential work of the men and women who, armed with only a camera, venture into the world's most dangerous places"-- Provided by publisher.
