Agence France-Presse’s Roland de Courson posted a chilling piece about their photo editors who have to look through all of the images coming out of the Middle East. Reading this gives you an entirely new perspective on hell.
Commenting on how the job has changed since the start of the Iraq war more than a decade ago, photo editor Marina Passos said:
What has changed is that the horrific images used to come once or twice a month. Now it is every day.
I hope AFP is offering counseling to those editors. Regardless of whether they feel they want it, they will need it.
