He is an independent war photographer. He covered areas of conflict including the defeat of Ceausescu’s regime, the civil war in Yugoslavia, Chechnya, the Gulf and Afghanistan wars. In Syria he documented the use of Sarin gas in the city of Damascus. His images and testimony where the first proofs in the growing body of evidences that forced governments and the UN into action. Shot in the early evening in a hotel in Beirut, this is a quiet portrait of a giant.
