Peter Turnley covered the first Gulf War in 1991, and was present from the first day of this latest war in Iraq which started yesterday March 19, 2003.

As important as these images are to him, Mr. Turnley said, so too are the photographs he has taken of the more mundane moments in people’s daily lives.

After following daily from afar the uprising in Egypt, and being inspired by the wonderful and courageous photographs made by many of my colleagues who were already there, I decided last Wednesday to board a plane for Cairo. I was well aware of the potential dangers for journalists covering this story.

Just carrying a Leica around with you can be a fashion statement. Former Newsweek photographer Peter Turnley has used a Leica for more than thirty years, especially for shooting Paris street photography. “They are elegant, discreet, and high-performing cameras, and they can accompany me like a friend through daily life,” says Turnley, who currently teaches photography workshops around the world. “A Leica M camera is also a bit like a piece of jewelry, like a special watch, that not only tells good time but also makes you feel good about yourself when you wear it.”

The first foreign trip I ever made as a traveling photojournalist was to India to cover the funeral of Indira Gandhi and the sectarian violence that followed her assassination by two of her Sikh bodyguards on October 31, 1984.
