On the cover: Less than a month before the U.S. invasion, Polaris photographer Yannis Kontos caught this prescient image of a Baghdad maintenance worker removing the sword from a statue of the soon-to-be deposed Saddam Hussein. PhotoMedia talked with three other photojournalists about the chaos they saw in the days that followed and the uneasiness that pervades Iraq today.
