Somewhere Between War and Peace.
Photographs by James Hill.
Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg, 2014. 160 pp., 60 color and black & white illustrations, 6¼x9".
Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer James Hill of the New York Times chooses fifty of his photographs and describes the stories and emotions behind those pictures and the artistic and emotional choices shaped during the intense kaleidoscope of those experiences. From the invasion of Iraq in 2003, to the Royal Wedding in 2011, to taking the first portrait of the notorious arms dealer Viktor Bout, to the death of Pope John Paul II, Hill has witnessed some of recent history's most poignant moments, and describes the fine balance demanded of a photojournalist between professional detachment and personal engagement.
