New York-based photojournalist Victor J. Blue has covered stories in Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, India and Afghanistan. Last fall, he and writer Luke Mogelson followed an elite Iraqi police unit called the Mosul swat team as its members fought to take back their city from the forces of the Islamic State. The men, Blue notes in a gripping story at The New Yorker, “were seeking vengeance not just for the threat to their country as a whole but also for the murders of family members by ISIS.”
