Alford, Anderson, and Leistner talked about their book Unembedded: Four Independent Photojournalists on the War in Iraq, published by Chelsea Green Publishing Company. They, along with Ghaith Abdul-Ahad, collected their photographs in the book to show the war from the point of view of those living in Iraq. Moderated by Ms. Lyden, the photographers talked about why they decided to cover the war without embedding in a military unit, showed slides of their work, and described what it was like to cover the siege of Najaf by U.S. forces in August of 2004. Iraq war correspondent Phillip Robertson, who wrote the introduction to the book, joined the discussion. 

Some of the photographs shown during this presentation are graphic in nature. close
