Unembedded: Four Independent Photojournalists on the War in Iraq Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The Pentagon's largely successful effort to "embed" the press with the troops has served to obscure much of the truth of the War in Iraq, a point that is vividly illustrated by this collection of photographs by four independent photojournalists, whose refusal to be embedded have allowed them to capture images of the war not commonly seen in mainstream journalism. The color photographs contain images of war beyond heroic portrayals of Anglo-American soldiers, including battles from the perspectives of the resistance, civilians killed by American fire and their grieving relatives, and bombed out buildings. They also portray other aspects of life in Iraq under occupation, including middle class young women gathered at restaurant, the rituals of traditional Iraqi weddings, Shi'ites on pilgrimage, and the inside of an Iraqi mental asylum.
