Danger Pay

Memoir of a Photojournalist in the Middle East, 1984-1994

; Ellen Spencer Susman (Redaktør)

«A deeply felt and moving account from an enterprising and conscientious news photographer who worked the always-busy beat of the Middle East in the last, great days of film photography." Rod Nordland, Chief Foreign Correspondent, Newsweek "Reading Danger Pay was a harrowing experience. Being a photojournalist on the front lines in the Middle East is no easy assignment. Writing about it with such vivid detail and thoughtful analysis is an equally impressive feat. This is a truly moving memoir in every way." Douglas Brinkley, Rice University, author of The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast»
