Nine years after it began, the war in Iraq has come to a close. But the images from that conflict continue to tell a powerful and dramatic story of a country going through an enormous evolution.
Photographer Ben Lowy spent time working in Iraq during the war. He's put some of his iconic images together in a pair of books titled "Iraq Perspectives." Errol Barnett recently sat down to talk to Ben about his work and what it was like to be a witness to the conflict.
You can see more photographs by Ben Lowy on the CNN Photo Blog. For more on his career, check out his website: http://benlowy.com
