An insightful, thought-provoking and beautifully written piece on conflict photography by Melanie Light. It centres around the recent demise of Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros both killed while covering the ongoing political turmoil in Libya.
Curiously enough, I had just had a conversation with a very talented young multimedia journalist who is being seduced by the powerful current that is war photography. I was imparting to him the acute danger associated with covering conflict and asking him to question the true worth of it, to himself, family and friends.
My animated and at times passionate delivery to him, heavily laden with reasons why not to go down this particular path, felt somewhat hypocritical as it left my lips.
Sadly, I could see my rhetoric was not reaching its mark.
