Since 2006, Danfung Dennis has covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. His still photographs have been published in Newsweek, TIME, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Rolling Stone, Le Figaro Magazine, Financial Times Magazine, Mother Jones, Der Spiegel, and The Wall Street Journal.

PBS’s Frontline opened its 2009 fall feature program, ‘Obama’s War’ using Danfung Dennis’s footage.

He is the founder of the immersive video startup Condition ONE.
