Stories from photographers on the front lines are sometimes amongst the toughest to swallow. And this one from Photographers Michael Kamber and Louie Palu are no different. Kamber is an NYTimes photographer and has been featured in Leica marketing videos about how his Leica M has survived near hell. But the video below isn’t about the gear. Instead, it is about incredibly powerful and captivating storytelling through images and words. Kamber talks about some of the tough times, such as when Saddam came out of power and mass graves were dug up so that families could identify they bodies. While hearing this is quite intense, seeing it is even more so.
The story and video is partially to promote a new book called, “Photojournalists on War: The Untold Stories from Iraq.” And the words from Kamber hit home even more as he talks about certain things that the US Government needs to think about and consider the next time that we get into a military venture.
Louie agrees, and states that traditional American journalism wasn’t the way that he wanted to talk about the war. The video is after the jump, and we strongly recommend a look.
