Photos From the Front Line

Photo by Reynaldo Leal

Marine Reynaldo Leal served in Iraq for two tours. He says he was never without three things: his rifle, his combat helmet and his Canon 20D. The interesting thing about modern war, he notes, is that all the soldiers have a camera now. So while the restrictions imposed by the military means we might not be getting the iconic images of Vietnam, we get a different view from the people actually fighting on the front lines.

CNN.com did a mini documentary on Leal and his camera here, and he gives some insight into photographing war.
