Michael Kamber has been taking pictures of war for more than 25 years. Between 2003 and 2010, the award-winning journalist worked for The New York Times in Iraq, amassing a vast body of work covering the conflict there. Later this year, Kamber will release a book of oral histories from fellow photojournalists who worked in Iraq during the war. “Journalists on War: Untold Stories from Iraq” will feature accounts of the conflict from nearly 40 journalists.
Kamber recently sat down with the NYCity News Service to talk about the book, and his experiences in Iraq.[Audio:http://cdn.journalism.cuny.edu/blogs.dir/9/files/2012/03/iraqphotog.mp3]
