Sean Smith: Iraq War Photographer

New exhibition at IWM North, Manchester, of Iraq War photographs by The Guardian’s Sean Smith. In this Guardian interview, Sean Smith discusses his experiences in Iraq.

“Marking ten years since the start of the 2003 Iraq War, a new photographic display by award-winning British war photographer Sean Smith reveals the collision of two worlds where local civilians and military personnel were forced to co-exist.

Smith documented the war in Iraq for The Guardian newspaper and these photographs were taken before, during and after the Iraq War. They will be exhibited in two displays, one inside and the other outside IWM North.

The display will reveal previously unpublished photographs, alongside Smith’s better known images from The Guardian’s coverage from Iraq.” (copy from
