"Michael Kamber’s new book, Photojournalists on War: The Untold Stories from Iraq, is a vital record of a conflict that will shape America, and Iraq, for decades to come." (Staff Columbia Journalism Review)
"Anyone who wants to see the real war in Iraq would do well to buy a copy of Michael Kamber's new book, Photojournalists on War. It's a vivid contradiction to many of the images widely broadcast and published during the past decade." (Staff Architects and Artisans 2013-05-01)
"The Photojournalist who covers a war is usually nameless and faceless... Now there is a new important oral history, Photojournalists on War: The Untold Stories from Iraq by Michael Kamber…Not all the photos are about war. Some show people in their daily lives, images, which depict the results of war on often innocent civilians. All are memorable." (Ron Steinman Hot Shoe 2013-06-01)
"The book—required reading for anyone interested in the way news is gathered an disseminated these days—collects Kamber’s interviews with 39 colleagues who covered the war…so these conversations are remarkably candid—confidences shared among friends that we’re privileged to be listening in on." (Vince Aletti Photograph 2013-07-01)
"The book is wonderfully printed, which is of course important for a book of photographs. But I find it hard to know how to describe the book less superficially-that is, to describe the content. The story is painful but you'll find the images hard to get out of your head. The images in the book bust open a hornet's nest of emotions: amazement and horror, admiration and sorrow, gratitude and pain." (William Porter William-Porter.net 2013-08-07)
"Photojournalists On War is THE reference book for any discussion of the War on Iraq and photography." (Pete Brook Photo-Eye Blog 2014-01-03)
"Photojournalists on War is the result of five years of interviews with some of the world's leading photojournalists. However, finds Gwen McClure, it's also the fruit of Michael Kamber's frustration over the harrowing images that were never shown or published before … The aim of the book … is to tell the uncensored story to the general public, an audience that hasn't been privy to much of what went on there. The photographs in the book are at once stunning and arrestingly graphic." (British Journal of Photography)
More About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Michael Kamber is responsible for the interviews and for bringing together this experience for us. "Photographers are storytellers: most love to talk," Kamber writes. "As a group, I believe we saw more of the war -- more of the actual ground war -- than any group of civilian observers, save for the Iraqis, of course." Contributors include photojournalists working for the Associated Press, the Guardian, the Los Angeles Times, Paris Match, Reuters and Time. in-depth interviews give first-person accounts of events from the long conflict that began with the 2003 U.S. -led invasion such as the toppling of former dictator Saddam Hussein's statue and the battle for Fallujah. They also touch on issues of censorship and the role of the media, as well as what journalists sometimes have to go through to capture images of conflict or human stories amid the chaos - the harrowing images that were never shown or published before. This is the most comprehensive collection of eyewitness accounts of the Iraq War yet published.Read more ›
