Photographers In Conflict
Here's an extremely interesting project produced by Goran Galic and Gian-Reto Gredig involving insightful interviews from 32 leading photojournalists
Following Abu Ghraib and the Asian tsunami, these 32 photographers were invited by Goran and Gian-Reto to a bare black painted studio, and were photographed and interviewed via videos.
According to the Photographers In Conflict website, the two artists by "isolating the photojournalists and placing them in front of their camera, reverse the asymmetrical power relationship between photographer and subject, and explore the self-perception of these photographers."
Some of the photographers/photojournalists are Philip Blenkinsop, Guy Calaf, Stanley Greene, Ben Lowy, and Shaul Schwarz.
Photographers In Conflict is also a publication in newspaper format which is available from the website.
