about: Reporting the World John Pilger Website purchase book

The close relationship between journalist and photographer is studied in this breathtaking selection of work by a wide range of photographers with whom John Pilger has worked or been inspired by.

Spanning 35 years, the book covers trouble spots in regional locations from South East Asia, Africa, South America to the USA and UK and Pilger praises the courage and integrity of the photographers in the face of warfare, political upheaval and tense circumstances.

John Pilger says: "In bringing together this selection my aim has been to show how great photographers are both story-tellers and truth-tellers going against the consensual versions of events, such as the illusions of 'booming' economies and 'smart' wars and the judgement of humanity as worthy and unworthy, sacrosanct or expendable, by great power."

Dream House by Gregory Cre…

He portrays the isolation and darkness found in the mediocrity of suburban life through a surreal sense of theatre in a style reminiscent of a high budget Hollywood production. Shot in an abandoned Maine home, Crewdson employs a fleet of celebrity faces, such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman, to play the roles of his desperate and lonesome characters.
