The article features the staff of Associated Press magazine, winner of the 2004 Sigma Delta Chi Awards in Journalism for best photography spot news. In 2004, the war in Iraq grew increasingly dangerous. The Associated Press found traditional photography virtually impossible. In response, Associated Press's Baghdad bureau recruited Iraqis, some of whom had never made pictures professionally, and trained them into world-class photojournalists. Their photos supplemented the work of the magazine's existing staff. Together, their work captured hostilities from both sides. The team of Bilal Hussein, Karim Kadim, Brennan Linsley, Jim MacMillian, Samir Mizban, Khalid Mohammed, John B. Moore, Muhammed Muheisen, Anja Niedringhaus, Murad Sezer and Mohommed Uraibi created iconic images from the war in 2004. The photo of U.S. contractors' bodies hanging from the Fallujah bridge received much attention, as did the photo of a medic trying in vain to save the life of a wounded soldier. The photo of U.S. Marines praying over the body of a dead fellow Marine was also published widely and was one of Associated Press's most requested photos of the year.
