Nina Berman, of World Press Award fame with her magnificent portrait of a severely burned Iraqi war veteran on his wedding day, has posted a multimedia on MSNBC.com. Not only does it gives more depth and information about the two protagonists, it is also a beautiful mix of images and voice over.
Like Todd Heisler’s images, the most compelling, the most telling, the most truthful images of the Iraqi war are not taken in Iraq, but right here in the USA. It is not about the violence of the combat itself but more about the profound impact that it has on American soldiers, their families and society if and when they return home.
