The Shot That Nearly Killed Them

The Guardian has a collection of images up from conflict photographers with a short description, from the shooters, of what was happening and how they were almost killed in making the image.

There are some very graphic images in here, be aware of that.

From Greg Marinovich, talking about an execution he witnessed in Soweto in 1990:

The victim was moaning in a low, dreadful voice as I left. I got in my car and, once I turned the corner, began to scream. You’re not just a journalist or a human being, you’re a mixture of both, and to try to separate the two is complicated.
