Profotos Staff Evaluation:
Documenting the horrors
and realities of war on film is probably something most people
would like to stay well away from. There are, however, those
photographers who venture into war-stricken areas to document
and photograph the harshness of these soils. Andres Puefke is
one of these photographers. The images in Andreas' portfolio
reflect the realities of war, through their effects on society
and the civilian population. While other photojournalists may
photograph the front lines of battle, we have found that the
majority of Andreas' work comes from behind the front lines.
One of the most poignant messages in armed conflict is the
effect it has on the civilian population. The images in Andreas'
portfolio clearly document the lives of civilians, whose worlds
have been torn apart by conflict and wars around them. As you
browse through Andreas' gallery, please keep in mind that these
are real people in real situations.
Thank you, Andreas, for your commitment to bringing the harsh
realities of war to our lives through your wonderful photographs.
Maybe through images like these, we can learn to treat each other
well and avoid conflict at all costs!
