Three affecting photo essays by acclaimed photographer Ashley Gilbertson for ProPublica and Frontline’s “Firestone and the Warlord.” Tremendously proud to have collaborated with Ashley and editor Joe Sexton on this.
The broader package is a doozy, too. An unprecedented look at a US company’s role in the rise of one of the 20th century’s most notorious warlords, T. Christian Miller and Jonathan Jones’ reporting is exhaustive and harrowing. A lot of work went into pulling this story—the longest in ProPublica’s history—into a complete, reader-friendly package. Hope to write more on that soon.
In the meantime, there’s a writeup from Ashley over on the New York Times’ Lens blog about his approach to these subjects.
