A few days ago, Duckrabbit posted an argument that War Photographers, especially contemporary ones, tend to write about their own experiences when on assignment. This lead to VII photographer Christopher Morris to provide a counter statement and a further response from Asim Rafiqui.

Year after year, decade after decade photographers have documented war. Rarely are they in the news, rarely do they become the story.
