    A feature-length documentary that chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soliders in Afghanisatn's Korengal Valley. The movie focuses on a remote 15-man outpost, Restrepo, named after a platoon medic who was killed in action. It was considered one of the most dangerous postings in the US military. This is an entirely experiential film: the cameras never leave the valley: there are no interviews with the generals or diplomats. The only goal is to make viewers feel as if they have just been through a 90-minute deployment. This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up to you.

    Premiere: Sundance Film Festival 2010,
    Winner: Grand Jury Award.
    The film will be released in the US in 2010.

    "This documentary has everything -- fire fights, silence, drag-butt humping up and down mountains, intense camaraderie, crushing boredom, near paralyzing fear, horsing around in the all male environment, anguish, and of course death. All delivered to you right in your face... Gives you the full range of war, the ups and downs and the sideways of war that allow you to assemble the pieces for your own conclusion... See it. You will be wiser. It's a real gem." Stewart Nusbaumer, Huffington Post

    "Particularly gritty and urgent...this movie gives you the same edge-of-your seat sense of suspense and awe about what soldiers go through in both Iraq and Afghanistan... " Steve Zeitchik, LA TIMES

    "You may think you have seen war docs before, but you've never quite seen anything like this. This film should be required viewing for anyone with a personal stake in the war in Afghanistan, which is everyone... You will laugh, cry, and sweat bullets, in real time, alongside the young men of the Second Platoon, Battle Company... I still can't shake its startling, enthralling, and frequently devastating images." Seth Abramovitch, MOVIELINE

    "Blood shed and blood shared are the twin barrels of 'Restrepo', an often electrifying verite trip into combat and the hearts of men." Variety

    "A well deserved triumph" Christopher Bateman, Variety "…A montage of silent soldiers' faces near the end is simple and moving...powerful and effective and respectful to the troops…and it gives a convincing sense of the immense difficulties of fighting a guerilla war in which you can never be sure whether the villager you're talking to is in league with your enemy." Kyle Smith, New York Post.

    "A powerfully involving nonfiction portrait of U.S. soldiers stationed in a valley in Afghanistan, contains a remarkable up-close perspective of soldier camaraderie and battlefield death... an unprecedented work of art that... left the room appropriately stunned." Eric Kohn, THE WRAP/INDIEWIRE

  3. Back in 2006 I wrote a .pdf about purism and street photography and posted it on deviantart.com. I featured not only my own work but many of my street-shooting friends from all over the world.

    Having wrote that it was always in the back of my mind that I wanted to update it. Yes, I could have written something yet I really wanted to do it with video. Until the Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 came about -- and with the most recent firmware update -- i couldn't have achieved "the look" i wanted.

    Over the course of two months this summer I enlisted the help of some friends to shoot ... I dunno ... the next volume or whatever this is.

    In this video you'll see my work and that of photographers Severin Koller, Frank Jackson and Mario Anzuoni, all with different perspectives for shooting street photography.

    There are too many people to thank; please read the credits at the end of part three.

    I hope you enjoy it. I know that I had an amazing time shooting and editing it.
