NPR's David Gilkey On Photojournalism

"Collateral damage has a face," says NPR photographer David Gilkey, who covered the recent conflict in and around the Gaza Strip. Gilkey was on assignment in Israel when fighting re-erupted, and worked alongside NPR's radio reporters, presenting people and situations in Israel and Gaza. Click here to view the video in HD.

 

Tear gas, air raids, destruction and despair all increased the challenges for Gilkey. While journalists only briefly experienced what the regions' inhabitants routinely endure, the synchronicity between the audio and visual components produced award-winning coverage. NPR video producer John Poole interviewed Gilkey about his experiences and assembled this presentation.
