War photographer Thorne Anderson has photographed events in Iraq since before the second gulf war. He's seen the society strain under the pressures of sanctions and occupation. His portraits are both striking and at times painfully intimate. In them he tries to captures the dignity of Iraqi people and their sense of helplessness in the face of powerful geopolitical interests. Listen to Three Photographs, a documentary by Radio Netherlands, about an eyewitness view to a brutal war. To view the photographs that will be the subject of this documentary, follow this link to the Radio Netherlands website.
More work by Thorne Anderson is available at Unembedded, a website featuring the work of four independent photographers working in Iraq.
