From the Baghdad Bureau blog at the New York Times, part 1 of a conversation between Stephen Farrell (a Times Baghdad correspondent) and photographers Joao Silva, Max Becherer and Franco Pagetti, “who have covered every phase of the Iraq conflict.” A slide show with some stunning photos accompanies the conversation. (On whether right now is the “best working environment” in Iraq to date, Pagetti says: “It’s like you’re watching the sea and following a wave, it’s going up and down, up and down.”)
