Watch the Q&A with Jan Grarup and Boris Bertram here:

World-renowned Danish photographer Jan Grarup, a World Press Photo laureate, has seen many wartime conflicts: Sierra Leone, Chechnya, Rwanda, Kosovo, Iraq, Darfur. His black and white photos reveal humanity and love in even the darkest corners and times. When doctors diagnose his ex-wife with an incurable disease, Jan has to become the full-time father of four. He faces the task of regaining their confidence after many years of being an absent father. At the same time, he remains driven by the desire to be the best in his profession. Now, as he leaves for Mosul to document the battle against Islamic State, he must always bear in mind, even during moments of greatest danger, that he must return home where his children are waiting for him.
