Photographer Sean Smith of the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper has turned in a powerful series of reports, “Inside the Surge,” that illustrate the disillusionment of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Smith’s videos also demonstrate how the profession of photojournalism is evolving. Unfortunately, Smith’s reports, which combine video interviews with still images, have also caught the attention of Osama bin Laden, who misrepresents their contents in his most recent propaganda video.
