Little known photos of the war

“When I, a writer, think about the profession of photojournalists in war, I think about how difficult this profession is. We can write later, we don’t have to write then. We can put something in our notebook, two or three words, and then expand the whole picture out of it, because our memory works. They can not remove later. They can only take off, at that moment, the tank that is attacking them, and the attack that they see. And the calamity they witnessed. The device does not remember, the device removes. Their memory is their pictures. What remains on the tape is their memory of the war. ”Konstantin Simonov.
