On March 18, my friends and colleagues over at the War Zone Freelance Exhibition opened their newest exhibition in the venues of the Sprechsaal in Berlin, Germany. They show the work they have done over the years from countries like Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, or Jordan. The exhibition also includes various footage from their journeys and stresses the important work of translators and fixers, whom we journalists are in close relation with in order to do our job.
On Thursday, they will have a panel discussion on how the media deals with graphic footage from war zones. If you can, go and have a look.
Christoph Bangert, a German photographer who spent years in Iraq after the Iraq war in 2003, will be attending the discussion. The photos shown are from the exhibitions opening evening on March 18th.
