Ashley Gilbertson on Fresh Air
Ashley Gilbertson, whose words and photographs we will publish later this year in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: A Photographer’s Chronicle of the Iraq War, was interviewed today on WHYY’s Fresh Air.
Gilbertson arrived in Iraq on the eve of the American invasion, hoping to pick up some picture assignments. He landed a contract with the New York Times, and his extraordinary images of life and death in Iraq chronicled the invasion, the occupation of Baghdad, the battle for Falluja, the Iraqi elections, and much more over the past four years. In the Fresh Air interview, he discusses his experiences, his photography, and new restrictions the U.S. government has placed on photographs of soldiers.
We will have much more to say about Whiskey Tango Foxtrot as the fall season progresses. Stay tuned.
Updated: We have a special website for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
