DadWagon Q&A: War Photographer Robert King

April 8th, 2011  |  by  |  Published in Q & A

As I wrote about earlier this week, I’ve been a little obsessed with the question of how to balance my responsibilities as a father whose kids (presumably) need him and as a journalist who sometimes needs to go into (presumably, somewhat) dangerous situations.

Who better to talk with, then, than Robert King, subject of the documentary “Shooting Robert King“, which came out on DVD last fall?The movie follows him over 15 years through three wars, from his early 20’s to his current situation: still a photojournalist, still going to dangerous places, but also a husband and father of a young son.

Because Robert is a bit of a multimedia fanatic (you can support his newest multimedia project on Kickstarter), he suggested we do our Q&A as a recorded Skype chat. It’s worth watching for Robert’s views on war, kids and the anti-parent bias of the news media.
