The Most Important War Photos You Haven?t Seen

| April 7, 2003

Thich Nhat Hanh wrote, ?If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work.? To that end, the Baghdad Snapshot Action Crew has provided one of the most effective peace protest tools we?ve seen yet: the faces of playful Iraqi citizens, as captured by Iraq Peace Team member and photographer Paul Chan. ?This moved him because laughing under the weight of UN sanctions and the threat of an absurd war is no easy task,? writes a National Philistine Web editor. ?We were moved because the people in these pictures remind us of our friends and family.? All of the photos on the site are available as downloadable PDF documents, in both color and black and white.
