today we are looking at the documentary film war photographer by christian frei.  i enjoy viewing and discussing this with students because it presents the notion of witnessing – a way of working as an artist who witnesses the world. at some point we are all out in the world, and this world-how ever we see it-becomes an integral part of our work. a prominent artist who has been a witness to the world is alfredo jaar.
