About Zoriah: 

Zoriah is an award-winning photojournalist whose work has appeared in The New York Times, BBC News, The United Nations, CNN, NBC, PBS, NPR, The Wall Street Journal and elsewhere. With a background in disaster management and humanitarian aid, Zoriah specializes in documenting human crises in developing countries.

"I want you to observe and comprehend what others live through on a daily basis — to see what the Iraqi civilians and foreign soldiers see," Zoriah said. "I want people who follow my photography to understand that although I am able to bring images of war to the world in a form of art, what actually goes on here is horror. My message is not that war yields great photography. My message is: War yields human misery and suffering."
