Today on Your Call: Unembedded in Iraq
On today’s Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation with independent photojournalists Kael Alford and Thorne Anderson about their experience as unembedded journalists covering the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Their goal was to capture the daily realities of Iraqi citizens. How do photographs shape your perception of war zones? Join us at 10 or email email@example.com.
