The still news image rarely bears such implications for life and limb on the ground as it does in Israel and Palestine. Too charged a photograph and blood will flow, suicide bombs will hasten the passing of innocents, and an overzealous state apparatus will also do the same. For Reinhard Krause, heading up a team of photographers from both sides of the divide in the Reuters photo bureau, the pressure to deliver genuinely balanced pictures is urgent and intense. Mirzoeff and Borgfeld's powerful film follows the operation and catches the cost, on all concerned, of working on the front line between image and all too visceral actuality.
