“Truth, it has been said, is the first casualty of war. In the U.S. - led invasion of Iraq, official truth died months before the bombing of Baghdad began. Unembedded bears witness to the enduring power of independent journalism. In their unflinching look at war-ravaged Iraq, four freelance photojournalists show that life there is brutal yet poignant; that compassion co-exists with anger, hatred and fear.” - excerpt from the book Unembedded - Independent Photojournalism in Iraq
