Michael Kamber

DEATH OF A SOLDIER (Iraq, 2007)

One morning in 2007 the photographer Michael Kamber went out on a foot patrol with American soldiers. Along a dirt track, in the deathly silence of the rising sun, one of the soldiers stepped on a land mine. He was killed instantly, and four of his colleagues were wounded. Later that day another soldier was killed by a sniper. Kamber found that the experience showed the nature of the guerilla war in Iraq: they had never seen an enemy combatant the whole day, but there were still two casualties.
