The Shot That Nearly Killed Me

Adam Ferguson was right in the middle of an Afghani suicide bombing

On this blog, I have often been accused of glamorizing war photography. Yes, I guess I do perpetuate the myth of photographer as a Nietzschean hero — probably because I myself have always wanted to be one. Anyway, my favorite neighbourhood leftie paper, the Guardian, has an excellent piece on war photographers this weekend called, “The Shot That Nearly Killed Me“.

The piece includes many photos we have seen here on Iconic Photos, such as this one by Ron Haviv and this one by Greg Marinovich and this one by Julie Jacobson.
