New Photographers - Zoriah Miller

Zoriah Miller is a war photographer that has been to Iraq, Afghanistan, the Gaza Strip and Lebanon. He has captured some of the most horrific scenes of combat, murder and death that show how dreadful war truly is. Due to this he has been banned from U.S bases and operations for a controversial set of photographs that he posted on his website. These photographs were of dead American marines or wounded soldiers. They were seen as bad publicity and due to this Miller will not be able to join U.S troops in combat. Now he is un embedded he has more freedom in what he takes, as it will not be filtered to the press, on the other hand he will not have the protection of trained troops. His work is very hard hitting, terrifying and gory but that is what war photography should be about and Miller shows this very well.
