ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the association of photography in assessing the cruelty of war. It notes that every observation is critical to photojournalists. They cover or report wars and their casualties. They serve as witness and that their reports are considered evidence in international courts. However, media coverage outcomes tend to be manipulated by the combatants and their enemies.
