Iraq war photographer chronicles experiences in new book

Press photographer Ashley Gilbertson, one of the longest-serving photojournalists in Iraq, has released a book about his experiences with his images from the war.

Whisky Tango Foxtrot: A Photographer’s Chronicle of the Iraq War tells the story of how he grew from “hard-drinking bravado to the grave realism of a scarred survivor”.

The former New York Times man, who had worked in Kurdistan before the war, told BBC Radio Five Live today: “I felt that it was my task as a photographer to return to Iraq with the Kurds to hold the Americans to account.”
