A Must-Have Book


Ashley Gilbertson/VII
During fierce fighting in the southern part of Fullujah, four wounded men surrendered to Marines from the Bravo company, 1st Battalion, 8th Regiment, 1st Marine Division. The men claimed they were students trying to escape the fight, Nov. 13, 2004



Last summer, we posted about the forthcoming publication of a groundbreaking new visual and oral history of America’s now ten-year conflict in the Middle East, "Photojournalists on War". The New York Times Lens blog today has featured  the book's introductory essay by Dexter Filkin, with a slide show selection of photographs from the book. Among the 39 photojournalists in the book are Andrea Bruce, Carolyn Cole, Stanley Greene, Tyler Hicks, Chris Hondros, Yuri Kozyrev, Khalid Mohammed and Joao Silva.

The exhibit “Invasion: Diaries and Memories of War in Iraq,” featuring work by Tim McLaughlin, Gary Knight and Peter Maass, opens March 14 at Mr. Kamber’s Bronx Documentary Center.
