Father first, global conflict photo and video photographer second, Andre' Loihn has captured some of the most stunning photo journalism images from some of the worlds most war torn countries.  His remarkable talent is telling the stories through his eye and lens in Libya, Haiti, Iraq, East Africa. Somalia, Ethiopia and neighbooring countries. Where conflict and human uprising is so is Andre' Loihn. 

Recently, while covering Libya, Andres' fellow award winning photographer friends, Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros lost their lives.  Andre' was at the hospital helping.  Andre' tells the story that the four photographers who had reached the city by sea in April from Benghazi, the rebel capital. Andre' said they had been working together on the rebel side of the front lines on Tripoli Street, one of the city’s main battle grounds. Watched by snipers and struck by all manner of incoming fire, from tank rounds to cluster bombs, it is an extended boulevard of ruins.  Andre knew all to well this scene could take a turn for the worse.

Covering the war in eastern Libya and Misurata in the west has proved to be especially treacherous for journalists, who have been subjected to airstrikes, and artillery, rocket, rifle and machine-gun fire, and they have faced the risk of arrest, beatings and detention from the pro-Qaddafi forces.

Andre' tells us about his life and how he maintains his own family covering these stories and more while thousands of miles away.  He talks about the longest and saddest day in Libya he has had, and the deadly risks associated with his job.  An in depth interview with one of the most talented photographers in the world.
