A Tale of Two War Photos

The Oscar winning (and wonderfully obsessive) director Errol Morris has just finished an interesting three part New York Times blog series on a puzzle involving two 1855 war photos.

As Errol humorously put it in the title of the first article, “Which Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?” As in any good investigative reporting, or documentary story telling, the journey of finding which photo was taken first is where most of the fun and learning occurs. Enjoy.
