“I’m not sure I’m that interested in being a great artist, I’m more interested in presenting evidence and recording history.”

Unveiled had the pleasure of speaking with Michael Kamber in advance of his lecture tonight at the Corcoran where he will speak about the upcoming WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY exhibition and the release of his insiders-game book, Photojournalists On War. We spoke at length and bring you this podcast:
