Ziv Koren is an Israeli photojournalist that lives in the mist of conflict on a daily basis. I have always had something of a fascination with war photography. For thirteen years I lived in Kashmir, often a war zone. But being married and with a young daughter, I choose not to put myself in harms way if possible. I choose a different type of photography, but I have the utmost respect for photographers like James Nachtwey, Robert Capa, Ziv Koren and others.
Ziv brings amazing imagery to his coverage of the Middle East conflict. If you have any interest in this kind of photography at all, you will find this short video moving. Be sure to check out his website and book. The videos below are a few years old, but none the less fascinating. The first video, More Than 1000 Words is of Ziv at work as things unfold. The next video is a really interesting look at how it was made and the technology that was developed to get both video for the film and, quite frankly, stay out of his way! Be sure to view both.
