    I would recomend watching THIS. His work is stunning. The film forces you to think about the ethical role that a PJ plays in conflict. His photos draw your eyes in and don't let them go. Imagine H. C. Bresson's mastery of "the decicive moment", but instead of being in the streets of Paris, he is in war zones being shot at. I was just floored. Just one of his photos would be the shot of a lifetime for a photographer, but he just gets them everytime he goes on assignment. I am in awe.

    I watched it a couple years ago. It's definitely one of the better photography documentaries out there.

    Wow. I didn't watch the video, but I did go through the gallery. I see this stuff and if I could do anything like it, I'd give up everything to do it. Very powerful.

    Netflix is groovy. That's where I got it. Anyone know of any other documentaries along these lines?

    Photography in general? or journalism, or more specific to war journalism?

    I enjoyed Anne Leibovitz - Life through a Lens.
