More About the Author

Ron Haviv is an Emmy nominated, award-winning photojournalist and co-founder of the photo agency VII, dedicated to documenting conflict and raising awareness about human rights issues around the globe.

In the last three decades, Haviv has covered more than twenty-five conflicts and worked in over one hundred countries. He has published three critically acclaimed collections of photography, and his work has been featured in numerous museums and galleries, including the Louvre, the United Nations, and the Council on Foreign Relations. Haviv's photographs are in the collections at The Houston Museum of Fine Arts and George Eastman House amongst others as well as numerous private collections.

Haviv has produced an unflinching record of the injustices of war and his photography has had singular impact. His work in the Balkans, which spanned over a decade of conflict, was used as evidence to indict and convict war criminals at the international tribunal in The Hague. President George H.W. Bush cited Haviv's chilling photographs documenting paramilitary violence in Panama as one of the reasons for the 1989 American intervention.

His film work has appeared on PBS's Need to Know and Frontline as well as NBC Nightly News and ABC World News Tonight. He has directed short films for ESPN, People Magazine, Doctors Without Borders, Asia Society and American Photography. Haviv's music videos have been on the MTV Europe and Sol Musica channels in Spain.

His first photography book, Blood and Honey: A Balkan War Journal, was called "One of the best non-fiction books of the year," by The Los Angeles Times and "A chilling but vastly important record of a people's suffering," by Newsweek. His other monographs are Afghanistan: The Road to Kabul, Haiti: 12 January 2010 and The Lost Rolls.

Haviv has helped create multi-platform projects for Doctors Without Borders' DR Congo: The Forgotten War and Starved for Attention, UNICEF's Child Alert for Darfur and Sri Lanka and the International Committee of the Red Cross's World at War.

Haviv is the central character in six documentary films, including National Geographic Explorer's Freelance in a World of Risk, in which he speaks about the dangers of combat photography, including his numerous detentions and close calls. He has provided expert analysis and commentary on ABC World News, BBC, CNN, NPR, MSNBC, NBC Nightly News, Good Morning America and The Charlie Rose Show.

This is simply one of the best photojournalistic book ever published. On top of that the essays are extrtemely interesting and complete the narrative of this amazing journey. A bit pricy but worth evey penny.

Great photography. Not much more needs to be said. If you know who these photographers are, you would not be basing your decision to purchase on opinions of strangers, and would just buy the damn thing already.

„War" ist der eindrucksvollste Bildband der in der letzten Zeit erschien. Die Photographen einer der zur Zeit angesagtesten Agentur haben dafür ihre besten Bilder zusammengestellt. Die vom New York des 11. Septembers, über Afghanistan einen Bogen hin zum Irak schlagen und so ein Stück aktuellse Zeitgeschichte dem Betrachter auf eindrückliche Art und Weise nahe bringen.

Unter diesen nehmen jene Aufnahmen von James Nachtwey eine Stellung ein, die nur schwer von anderen erreicht wird.

Die Wiedergabe der Bilder und die gesamte Gestaltung des Buches ist sehr gut, und wird noch um einleitende Essays der Photographen ergänzt.

This is one of the best pieces of photojournalism available on the beginning of the Second Gulf War. However, that fact makes this book hard to revisit. It has sat on my shelf ever since I first sat down to examine it pages.
