I have more than one friends in Kiev covering the dedicated fight of the ukranians. Their work is getting more like war photography than general reportage. Photographers as well have a hard time in the civil war like situation.
In Thai Binh located in Indochina, the world famous war photographer who died as Robert Capa on this day in 1954 was originally born in Budapest named Endre Erno Friedmann. This here is his last photo taken before he stepped on a mine and died.
Peter and David Turnley photograph the various conflict zones of the world the way many other photojournalists do and they have amusing and horrifying stories about their job like many other photographers. But they have some extra stories about how the two identical twins get some times mixed up or just looked on strange when they are seen working together. They have the same genes and the same professional background that often results quite similar images as well.
This is a book every photographer should read, but I think it is worth to read it for everyone else. Especially if one is interested in any form of photography, media, war, history and likes well written funny stories – especially all of these goes for you.
