Photographs From John Ferguson's Photo Archive #1

I have a few thousands photographs on various hard drives dotted around my study. Most from my many travels around the world as a photojournalist, to-date I’ve have visited and worked in nearly 60 countries. So I thought I'd share some of my more interesting assignments and images with you all, once a week. Hope you don't mind. :-) 

I took this photograph in Baghdad, Iraq in 2002. I was sent by my picture desk at the Daily Mirror newspaper, just before the start 2nd invasion, along with my colleague, reporter @chrishughesie to interview Saddam Hussein about Iraq's so-called weapons of mass destruction, an obviously impossible task. But we did manage to #photograph and interview his No.2 Tariq Aziz with the help of UK MP George Galloway. This image was taken during a walk around the city of Baghdad… Pictures shows aerial bomb damage by US aircraft during the first gulf war. This man had lost his family, wife, children and parents in the bombing raid. I took this picture on 12mm Nikkor lens on a Nikon D1
