Franco Pagetti

Photographer, Award Nominee


Who is Franco Pagetti?

'Franco Pagetti, member of VII Photo Agency, has covered the conflict in Iraq since January 2003, three months before the start of the war. Since 2004, he has consistently been based in Baghdad on assignment for TIME Magazine. His images have captured the horrors of war, the brief flowering of hope after the downfall of Saddam Hussein, the rise of insurgent and terrorist groups, and more recently, the inexorable descent into a bloody sectarian civil war. Pagetti has been a news photographer since 1997, and most of his work has involved conflict situations: Gujarat (2002), Afghanistan (1997-8, 2001), Kashmir (2000 and 2002), Palestine (2002), Sierra Leone (2001) Kosovo (1999), East Timor (1999) and South Sudan (1997). Pagettiā€™s lens has captured both incredible heroism as well as grisly brutality in war zones on three continents. Regardless of the geographic setting, Pagetti says, war and its aftermath seem to affect vastly different societies in almost exactly the same way. In addition to TIME Magazine, he has worked on assignment for Newsweek, The New York Times, The New Yorker and Stern. His work has been published in Le Figaro, Paris Match, The Times of London, The Independent
