MediaStorm Collaborates with the Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles Times photojournalist Luis Sinco photographed James Blake Miller during the assault on Fallujua, Iraq in November 2004. The image of Miller, with a distant look and a cigarette dangling from his lips, ran in newspapers and on TV broadcasts around the country and became an emblem of the Iraq War. The image has changed both of their lives and connected photographer and subject in ways neither imagined.

MediaStorm collaborated with the Los Angeles Times to produce a three-part multimedia series entitled The Marlboro Marine to the tell the story behind the photograph and this soldier’s struggle as he tries to rebuild his life after a tour of duty and a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder.
