Freelance photojournalist Laurent Guérin has worked in Israel and the occupied territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip for the last three years, from the millennium through the continuing Second Intafada. His photographs of the region and the conflict have appeared in Time Magazine, the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, the Santa Fe New Mexican and the Albuquerque Journal. Paris-born Guérin, who has lived in the United States since 1984, documented the conflict in Nicaragua (1986) and Chiapas, Mexico during the height of the Zapatista uprising (1994). He first became acquainted with, and was deeply affected by, the war and the Middle East as a member of the international peace-keeping force in Beirut, Lebanon in 1983-84.
Guérin was a contributing photographer for The Foreign Game, an investigative report by the Dayton Daily News, which was nominated as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2002. He is also co-author with journalist Zelie Pollon of The Baghdad Projet: One Hundred Faces, One Hundred Voices, A Story About War (baghdadproject.com).
