Ron Haviv began his photojournalism career documenting political upheaval in Panama. His first famous photograph was published in 1989,as a (Newsweek)magazine cover showing a bloodied Vice Presidential candidate. He then went on to compose and document the Balkan wars, hoping that the world would see evidence of the atrocities and intervene. Having photographed almost every major conflict, he founded the V11 Photo Agency in 2001, representing other photojournalists. Over the years his photographs have become increasingly beautiful and artistic.
