Conflict, available now on Netflix, comprises six episodes. Photographers Pete Muller, Joao Silva, Donna Ferrato, Nicole Tung, Robin Hammond, and Eros Hoagland are each given seven minutes or less to explain, justify, or simply to testify to the years they’ve spent on the frontline of some of the world’s deepest traumas. The entire series is barely 35 minutes, and those minutes go by in the blink of an eye, but—like the photographs made by its heroes and heroines—they stick around for a while.
A Photojournalist Walks Away From His Profession
How do you decide when you've seen enough of war?
“Conflicts and wars are fought for the old reasons: man's desire for dominance over men,” Eros Hoagland says in this short film, We Fear Wolves Because We Never See Them. With a baby on the way and a lifetime of traumatic memories from war, however, Hoagland is ready to move on to the next thing: “Enough is enough. I did it. I did it well.
Interview with Eros Hoagland - The Photo Brigade
Photographer Zach D Roberts interviews photojournalist Eros Hoagland about his new book, “Reckoning the Frontier”, featuring shots from his years along the border of the US and Mexico.
I think violence attracts a lot of people, not just journalists. But journalists do seem to love it so. Not that violence is the only magnet for our profession, not at all.

On second thought, we behave much worse than vultures in many cases
“I wanted to develop my own desert look,” said Mr. Hoagland, 43. “I was unsure how the journalistic community would take it. It was a form of manipulation. They’d say, ‘That’s not how things look.’ But to me, the way things felt kind of trumped that concern.”

Photographers Amid Chaos
“Witness” is HBO’s series of four documentaries about photojournalists in crisis spots around the world.
“Witness: Juarez,” the first in a series of four HBO documentaries about contemporary war photographers, is the visual equivalent of a fast-paced duet, like Mozart for still camera and video camera rather than violin and viola. The photographer Eros Hoagland and the cinematographer Jared Moossy travel the deadly streets of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, in tandem, and our view jumps between their lenses; their photographs and moving images echo and amplify one another.
