The war in Lebanon, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the election of President Nelson Mandela and the bloody siege of Sarajevo – these are just a few of the history-shaping events photojournalist Tom Stoddart has seen through his lens. It was our great honour to ask one of the world’s most respected photojournalists some questions – questions which he only answers with his photographs…
