I am very honored to be one of the women featured in Tess Gallun's project
BEHIND THE LENS OF CONTEMPORARY COMBAT: WAR As Experienced By Women Photojournalists by Tess Gallun here is an excerpt from Behind the Lens
"The women that I interviewed are: Lynsey Addario, Samantha Appleton, Sherrlyn Borkgren, Deborah Copaken Kogan, Ruth Fremson, Pauline Lubens, and Ami Vitale. By going behind the scenes of combat photography and looking at the realities, trauma, and ethics of war through the eyes of these women, I analyze how female photojournalists feel that their gender and increased presence in the field are affecting their efforts on the front lines. In particular, I examine how concern for others plays out for these women, illustrating that there are caring voices that need to be recognized, valued, and heard."
Disclaimer: I made this blog to talk about things that matter to me. Whether it be destination weddings or the front lines, it's all about being holistic in world views and balanced in life.
