A Must-Hear Interview with Zoriah


I’ve mentioned this amazing war photographer, Zoriah, in a previous article here on the blog. Well… over at the PhotoNetCast, we took things a step further and got him on a conference call for an interview!

This is something that you’ll definitely want to listen to. He talks about his past, present, and future in photojournalism and war photography. The guy is amazingly down-to-earth for the amount of nasty stuff that he’s experienced. He talks about what he does, why he does it, and how he got into it. We also have a bit of a discussion about his recent issues with military politics/censorship in Iraq.

Again, I encourage everyone to listen to this interview. Zoriah is a great photographer and human being — he deserves to have his stories heard.

PhotoNetCast to Interview Zoriah Miller

In the near future, a special guest will be joining the discussion on the PhotoNetCast. Zoriah is an independent war photographer and photojournalist who was recently embedded in Iraq. For more background on Zoriah, see my recent article about him.

We’re taking questions over at PhotoNetCast, and we’ll bring up those questions when we talk with him (since we won’t be broadcasting live). If you have anything you’d like to ask Zoriah about his work, travels, experiences, etc., be sure to leave a comment on the PhotoNetCast announcement post:
