digital photos from Iraq

Soldiers bring guns and maybe attack or reconstruct a country. All along they've got their cameras, and they're human and curious and so they take pictures. And some pictures look like fun, human record of personal experience and an attempt to contextualize and understand something so totally bizarre as the rolling war machine and your part in it and the people you're fighting with you can't talk to. Some pictures look like exploitation, where the people pictured weren't comfortable or willing.

Seeing glimpses of a war in progress through the eyes of a young soldier: on TheFeature.com. I wonder if the people administering the war are happy to have their soldiers carrying cameras?
