Gary Knight, conflict photographer and co-editor of dispatches, the new quarterly journal, will give a talk on “Shooting War: Ethics in Conflict Photography”, showing his work and also that of fellow photographer Yuri Kozyrev. Knight, born in England, started working as a photographer in Southeast Asia during the 1980s as Indochina emerged from bitter wars and the region came to grips with the end of Cold War. In 1993, he moved to collapsing Yugoslavia where he returned repeatedly from the siege of Sarajevo through the fall of Kosovo. Between assignments for Newsweek, he documented crimes against humanity. After 9/11, he worked in Afghanistan and two years later independently followed U.S. troops into Iraq. He has covered wars in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Asia and other breaking news, but Knight’s central focus is on the survival of the world’s poor and fundamental human rights issues. Knight is founding director of VII Photo Agency. He established the Angkor Photo Festival and is a board member of the Crimes of War Foundation. In 2008, he was chairman of judges for World Press Photo. His work, widely awarded, published in magazines, and exhibited worldwide, is in museums and private collections. He has initiated education programs with universities and voluntary agencies, and is the author of Evidence: War Crimes in Kosovo (de.MO, 2002) http://www.rethink-dispatches.com
