A fascinating documentary that follows the career of photographer Robert King, tracing his work from his start in Bosnia, through his time in Chechnya to his struggles in Iraq. As well as showing us the unvarnished truth behind the images that emerged from those war zones, the film shows how King himself has grown as a person and a professional. Starting out in Bosnia in 1993 as a naive 24 year old, King barely knew the rules of the game. Over the course of 15 years on film, we see him acquire a lifetime of experience.
