Standing in the middle, photographing conflict – BBC News

Jerusalem-born photographer Muhammed Muheisen grew up with news, keeping a camera around his neck. Early on, he learned a precious lesson: to photograph conflict, you have to position yourself in the middle. As AP’s Chief Photographer for the Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan he has been roaming the region for the past decade, photographing wars and the people caught up in them. His work has received numerous awards, among others, Breaking News Pulitzer Prize winner in 2005 and 2013 for covering the war in Iraq and the civil war in Syria.
