In The Light Of Darkness

Kate Brooks was the youngest photojournalist to cover the beginning of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She has spent the last ten years in both of those countries photographing how war has impacted daily life. She’s been asking some pretty basic questions recently, like “Why do I, as a photographer, need to photograph another dead child for people to understand the realities of war?” Kate’s book is called In The Light of Darkness: A Photographer’s Journey After 9-11.
