Jeff B. Harmon At War

Photograph 1 of 32

My El Salvador photos are represented by the Black Star photo agency. The technician in charge of the darkroom is shocked by a photograph of me in a tropical shirt holding up a severed head – something I did on impulse. It felt like a basketball. According to Howard Chapnick, the president of Black Star, “This man develops thousands of war photographs. But your photograph sent him stalking out of the darkroom wondering what kind of monster you are.”
