Photography + Journalism in Iraq. Charlie Rose.

War photographers/personal hero's: Kate Brooks, James Nachtwey, Robert Nickelsberg + Yuri Kozyrev.
I saw this show when it originally aired in 2003, at the start of the War in Iraq. It affected me on many levels... seeing the images and hearing the brave photographers talk about their experiences made the war more real to me... I was better able to grasp the tragedy. I've always been fascinated by war photographers and I deeply admire them... I think their work makes a real difference. It saddens me to think that now, 6 years after this was shot, the war continues...
