TTBOOK: Boots on the Ground: Covering the War

For all podcast listeners this series from NPR is a great insight into the war in Iraq and excellent reference for MGA's current exhibitions, Icon & archive and The wire: photographs by Lyndell Brown and Charles Green

Errol Morris made a documentary about Abu Ghraib called Standard Operating Procedure. Journalist Philip Gourevitch and Morris have written a companion book that examines what really happened at Abu Ghraib. In this podcast Gourevitch talks with Steve Paulson and gives not only a disturbing account of US policy in Iraq but puts forward a ‘philosophical meditation on what photographs can and cannot tell us about the truth.’
