War Took Their Childhoods

A war photo a day #10

Eight years. Seven wars. More death and destruction than I care to recount. I’ve been covering armed conflict since 2005. Every battlefield has its stories … and its unforgettable images. Follow me through my career at war, one jarring, haunting or sublime photo a day until I run out.

The two-decade civil war in Somalia robbed millions of their lives, health, wealth and innocence. In a Mogadishu market in 2007 I photographed these boys in an unguarded moment. Their eyes spoke of horrors and deprivation no little boy should suffer.
