What happens here?
Field reporting on conflict, tactics, insurgency and counterinsurgency, the arms trade and human rights. Behind scenes glimpses of work. Front-line forensics, battlefield paleontology, appreciative nods, mini-profiles, explanatory riffs. Pix. Tweets. Updates. Links. And occasional accounts of the other, better life.
Warning: Some photographs are technical. A few are graphic. There are reasons. Every time.
