The War in Iraq, Through Photographers Eyes

A group of elite conflict photographers have banded together under the photo agency, VII, in an effort to uncover the true meaning of the Iraq War.

In the wake of September 11, the VII agency was formed by award-winning veteran photographer James Nachtwey and colleagues, and has since covered the site at Ground Zero, the invasion of Afghanistan and the Iraq War since America plunged headlong into its “War Against Terror. ” For Nachtwey, the accumulated experience of nearly a quarter century of war photography began crystallizing into a vision centered around Ground Zero. Come with us as we discover what this vision was, delve into respective war photographers’ thoughts and actions in the heat of battle, as well as how the face of war has changed since 9/11.

  1. you know we are so wored about how they fill over there. how about how we felt when they killed are people. They bomed us and did not build anything back up for us but we do it for them. Tell me what about they way are people fill.

  2. Keep working ,great job!

  3. This documentary about the way a group of photographers responded to their experiences, and what their images compel from that experience. This is not a documentary based on factual analysis of the causes for the Iraq and Afghan campaigns. It is based on experience, and I found the images to be interesting. I have looked through many photographic journals, but it is quite insightful to hear the opinions of the people who took the photos. This has nothing to do with justifying war–it is an analysis.

  4. This documentary might form the illusion, that the attack on iraq had anything to do with 9/11. THIS IS WRONG!
    The only reason for conquering the iraq was the attemted control of the iraqi oil. Even Afganistan only had a very very vague connection to 9/11, since the al quaida-network is not basically locatet in afganisthan, but is a worldwide organisation. So you might as well attack france. By not making a clear historical cut to those events this documentary is at the bare edge of propaganda.

    • 911 was used as a pretext for waging war (for oil) with the countries who were protecting those “responsible”. Let me tell you, you don’t find those responsible by declaring war on an entire country. What right did they have in making decisions for another country, apart from might right? No fucking right. Liberators?, my arse. Instigators, Liars, Tormentors. Zombie devils. Any fucking dumbass knows that war only causes more of the same and that’s what feeds and is feeding the military corporate machine.They sell weapons to countries and then start up some shit with them. They’re ruthless and unstoppable. They’re almost indestructible. Bunch of untouchable war-mongerin’ cunts. So, if your American and this is what you stand for, this is how you use your freedoms, the right to bear arms down upon other nations, for whatever fucking deceitful reason, to trample on others in the name of money, If you think this is what freedom grants you, then you’re in for a nasty fucking shock mutherfuckers, cause Mother Nature sends her regards sooner or later.mwahhahahaha!! Too much?
