War Photographer

War Photographer was a very interesting documentary to watch. I am intrigued by this man who travels the world documenting human tragedy. I am surprised that people allow him to stand by and witness their most intimate moments of suffering and take pictures. It is a job that few people can take. I am interested in knowing more about how he copes with the amount of horror and suffering that he has seen and witnessed. He seems so humble, gentle and soft-spoken despite the horrific things he has seen. I was shocked with his photos of famine victims. They were nothing but skeletons with skin. He was right in saying that those are not usually the images that we see of famine because most are taken at feeding centers. It is important to document tragedy and to let the world know, so I value this task that he has taken on. It was a very interesting documentary to watch.
