The Soldier

UPDATE: MSNBC has purchased “the soldier” and is running it on their front page in time for the 5th anniversary of the Iraq war. See it here.

The Eddie Adams Barnstorm Workshop, now in its 20th year, is one of the best in America for photojournalism. Every year 100 students come to the farm of the late Pulitzer Prize winning photographer in upstate New York to shoot a photo story and listen to the greats of photojournalism talk and show their work.

This year I was lucky enough to be asked by Brian Storm (Mediastorm) and Tom Kennedy ( to be a member of their multimedia team. I was then assigned to the Blue Team with photographer Chris Hondros and picture editor Pancho Bernasconi, both of Getty Images News and producer Leah Latella. Chris chose Shakespeare’s Seven Ages of Man as the theme for our team of 10 photographers. I tagged along with talented team member Brian Sokol who shot the images. I recorded and edited the audio and his images to produce this piece.

Our multimedia team was amazing in its breath and talent. Check out the rest of the multimedia presentations.
