Do I exploit my subjects? Is it morally justifiable to work as a photographer in war zones and disaster areas? Why are we all so attracted to images of other people's misery? Am I producing 'War Porn'?
As a photographer covering conflicts for international publications, Christoph Bangert is regularly confronted with the dilemma between truthful documentation and (self-) censorship.

The result is as shocking as it is honest.
