    The Costs of the Russian Onslaught in Ukraine

    Destruction, brutality, and terrible loss in Bucha, Kharkiv, Irpin, and elsewhere.

    via The New Yorker: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/portfolio/05/09/the-costs-of-war

    The invasion of Ukraine has been described as the first social-media war, and a key aspect of President Volodymyr Zelensky’s leadership has been his ability to rally his country, and much of the world, via Facebook, Telegram, TikTok, and Twitter. At the same time, war photographers in Bucha, Irpin, and beyond are working—in the tradition of Mathew Brady at Antietam or Robert Capa on Omaha Beach—to capture the grisly realities of what Vladimir Putin insists that his people call a “special military operation.”

    Ljubljana : James Nachtwey at Slovenia Press Photo

    I spent the entire day right in the middle of the chaos and barely managed to survive. That night I made my way to the TIME office, dropped off the film and after the initial edit for a special issue of the magazine, I never looked at it again. My heart had been broken. I had lived through numerous situations that had been equally, if not more dangerous. I had witnessed many tragic events, which had also broken my heart. But what happened in my own city, so suddenly, was a catastrophe of such aggressive force, monumental scale and devastating consequence it was difficult to comprehend what I had just seen with my own eyes, and I understood the world I had known was changed forever.

    The first bit of advice I would give to someone who aspires to cover wars is not to do it. Are you really sure you know what you’re getting into? Have you thought deeply about the potential consequences for yourself and for your family? Why don’t you find something else to do that would make a difference but not subject yourself to danger and hardship.

    In the five years Baghdad was my home, I got to work (or just hang out) with some of the finest news photographers in the world: Yuri Kozyrev, Franco Pagetti, Kate Brooks, James Nachtwey, Robert Nicklesberg, Lynsey Addario, the late Chris Hondros… the list is as long as it is distinguished. Their immense talent and incredible bravery combined to make the Iraq war arguably the most exhaustively photographed conflict in human history. This selection doesn’t begin to capture the immensity of their collective achievement, but it is evocative of the horrors — and just occasionally, hope — they were able to chronicle.

    Maybe what we are seeing here is not just some digital post-processing completely out of control, but also the result of seeing almost each and every event on the big screen, re-imagined in some Hollywood form: Our thought of “It almost did not look real” is turned into a reality: It literally does not look real any longer.

    Ten years after the event, maybe Stockhausen was right when he said: “Well, what happened there is, of course—now all of you must adjust your brains—the biggest work of art there has ever been.”

    In her article — “How I Was Duped by Mrs. Assad” — Ms. Buck explains how she ended up reluctantly writing the flattering Vogue profile that brought the magazine scrutiny amid the Assad government’s reign of violence in Syria. But some of her explanations as to why she felt “Syria gave off a toxic aura” have set off fresh criticism.
