The image at war

As the conflict in Lebanon hopefully draws to a close we are reminded of the power of images in times of war.

First we had the news that Reuters sacked photographer Adnan Hajj after he doctored an image, allegedly to increase the emotional impact of the shot.

On a more honest front, now that the situation in Lebanon has stabilised, Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson's images have been compiled into a photographic essay covering the conflict.

Images of horror, confusion and pure pathos sit cheek-by-jowl with staggeringly beautiful and wonderfully composed landscape shots. Sobering stuff.
