Photos of war

Two related links that I came across today. First, a week-old blog called Fallujah in Pictures.

Then, a column that appeared on Salon:
The heartbreak of war
For one reader, a single photograph brought home the inconceivable horror that is Iraq

By J. Scott Smith
Those links reminded me of a lengthy essay by Susan Sontag on war photography that was in the New Yorker a while back, and that I tried (unsuccessfully) to get through. A Google search turned up that she wrote a book on the subject:
Regarding the Pain of Others
by Susan Sontag

Google also turned up a review of that book, by none other than Hitchens:

New York Observer, 3/17/2003
Sontag Looks at Images of War

by Christopher Hitchens
