Whiskey Tango Foxtrot will feature 10 of Gilbertson’s photographs, chronicling America’s early battles in Iraq, the initial occupation of Baghdad, the insurgency that erupted shortly afterward, the dramatic battle to overtake Fallujia, and, ultimately, the country’s first national elections. This wide-ranging chronicle of the war from the viewpoint of the photographer is the first of its kind. Gilbertson’s narratives convey the exhilaration and terror of photographing war, as well as the challenges of photojournalism in our age of embedded reporting. The photographs of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot depict the full range of human experience called up by the war in Iraq. These programs are sponsored by ArtsWeek, the Political Science Department and The Indiana Democracy Consortium, the Fine Arts Student Association and IUSAA at Indiana University.
