Westport Photographer Spencer Platt Shoots in the Congo

Spencer Platt, a 33-year-old Westporter who roams the world shooting pictures for New Yorks Getty Images news agency and most recently covered the war in Iraq, reports on his latest assignment Җ the Congo in the online journal The Digital Journalist.

Excerpt: ֓While the statistics are not yet out, it is possible that more journalists covered the war with Iraq than any other conflict in modern times.

This is not a bad thing, but it begs the question why have some wars been given an almost celebrity status while others, equally or more destructive in nature, have hardly registered on the publicӒs radar? I like to think it was partly in response to this question that I was sent to Congo.
