Photographer Brian Walski, who was fired from the Los Angeles Times last month, tells David Walker he wasn’t thinking about ethics when he manipulated a war zone photo. “I was looking for a better image,” he says. “It was a 14 hour day and I was tired. It was probably ten at night. I was looking to make a picture. Why I chose this course is something I’ll go over and over in my head for a long time.” He adds: “I wake up in the morning and can’t believe that I did it, that it’s happening to me. But I did, and I can’t blame anybody but myself.”
