War Photography And The Consequences Of Image Reality

War photography is a special breed of photography that shows us a harsher reality and flaws of the human condition. This study looks at the period of war photography starting with World War II until the first Iraqi War through a western-centric view and the changes it has undergone. Using historical research and content analysis of Susan Sontag’s book, Regarding the Pain of Others, photographing wars will be dissected on a moral plane to confront the growing issues. While American public opinion on wars and the use of censorship heavily influences the images shown to the public, the reality of war is being transformed and convoluted, creating new ethical and social dilemmas.
