He's good, Bill. No doubt about it. But when I see photographs like these I always think: if you're there, in a country like this, these pictures are all around you. The reason I know that is that I've done it -- more than once.
War reportage, and third-world reportage long ago became boring cliches. It's always the same pictures over and over again: the agony and the destruction and the pain. That's one reason I'm a big fan of Steve McCurry (even though he didn't pick one of my pictures as a winner in the Open Shutter contest). Once in a while he'll shoot a standard war picture, but most of the time he concentrates on people as individuals, not as generic types. I think Giles tried to do that, but I don't think he entirely succeeded.
