- Is War Photography Art? Интервью с известным военным фотографом Филипом Джонсом Гриффитсом (Philip Jones Griffiths).
Philip Jones Griffiths was born in Rhuddlan, Wales, in 1936. He studied pharmacy in Liverpool and worked in London as a part-time photographer for the Manchester Guardian. In 1961, he began freelancing for the Observer, moving to Central Africa and covering the Algerian war the following year. In 1966, he moved to Asia, where he photographed Vietnam until 1971. During this time Griffiths became involved with Magnum, a photographic co-operative owned by its photographer-members. In 1980, he moved to New York where he held the post of Magnum president from 1980 to 1985. Griffiths became famous for his 1971 book Vietnam Inc., which crystallized public opinion against the American war on Vietnam and prompted Henri-Cartier Bresson to call him the Goya of photojournalism. He has since published six books, including Agent Orange, which documents the effects of the eponymous chemical sprayed by the Americans on the children and grandchildren of Vietnamese and Cambodian farmers during the Vietnam War; and Dark Odyssey, a collection of his best work covering wars and conflicts in Africa, Asia, and Europe.
