  4. Pretty darn cool. I have to admit that I never was too impressed by photography as an art form: if I had to choose between a painting and a photograph to decorate my bedroom, I’d choose the painting ten times out of ten. But, now I’m starting to really come around. Thanks for this one. This is a cool one about war photography: and the power that it had in making people start to KIND of understand war – or, at least see its brutality.
