Photojournalism in War Zones

Documentary photographer and Journalism School Associate Professor Donna DeCesare discusses photojournalism and the legacies of violence in El Salvador's civil war with exhibitions intern Joey Kolker. DeCesare is a co-organizer of the April 2008 conference Image, Memory, and the Paradox of Peace. Also, a selection of 30 of DeCesare's photographs form the section El Salvador Inside Out in the Harry Ransom Center's exhibition Inside El Salvador. The photographs trace the stories of two individuals and their relationship to the war and its legacies.

Donna De Cesare, Edgar Bolaños — "There are lots of people here who want to kill me. I don't mean homeboys. I mean the really bad people from the organized crime rings and other people who just hate us."
