On November 14, 2004, photographer Ashley Gilbertson followed two marines up the stairs of a mosque in Fallujah, Iraq. Working for The New York Times, Gilbertson was there for a photograph. Instead, he watched a young man die. It wasn’t the first death he’d seen, but it has haunted him ever since.
It was my honor to interview Gary Knight for my Trouble Shooter column with New York mag, Resource Magazine. His work has been a major influence on me for several years.

“The on-going anti-Ukrainian protests- Some images of the men who were on duty at the EuroSquare barricades over the past couple of days. This is the front-line where protestors stand and wait- a line of defiance against the government corruption. The cops with shields and batons are only 100 yards away behind a no mans land of blackened sheet ice. They rotate the watch in 2 (not 8!) hour shifts and keep warm around burning oil drums when not watching the line of cops. Earlier in the month, 2 people were shot and killed here by sniper fire with scores more injured in running battles in the neighboring streets.”
