Topic: Who is your favorite war photographer and war photo?


War is gruesome and captured on film releaves the suffering and violence civilian (and military) personell face on everyday basis perhaps more than through the TV screen images - perhaps more than we all can imagine.

Who is your favourite war photographer and what's your favourite war photography? Not just the act of war, every aspect.

In my opinion Eddie Adams and his photo of police chief Nguyen Ngoc Loan who shoots the prisoner in the head in Saigon 1. feb 1968 sticks to my mind as a description on how cruel a war/crisis can be.

U.S. troops carried out a raid on three farms in Tikrit, the hometown of toppled leader Saddam Hussein, after receiving a tip from an Iraqi informant that the ex-president's new head of security was staying in one of them.
