and War: the art
of the photojournalist
“War is one of the subjects I’m most passionate about in my job. You need courage and you have to push yourself beyond your own limits. You have to break down the barriers telling you not to do something or go somewhere. One part of your mind is saying “get the hell out” while the other will be telling you this is a great shot.”
“War photographers bear a responsibility to show the rest of the world what’s going on in areas of conflict, what’s happening on the ground. We are obligated to tell the true, unbiased story and to inform the rest of the world.”
“The adrenaline of conflict photography can be addictive but you have to remain level headed. You tend to evaluate within thirty seconds whether a situation is hostile and whether it is going to work with you or against you.” - Andrew Parsons
