Kainoa Little, a Washington-based conflict photographer managed to capture raw moments in the lives of those in Mosul, while a gory battled raged on. In the midst of this inferno, he photographed the Iraqi forces fighting against the ISIS militants, refugees fleeing the site of battle and documented myriad details of their daily lives.
Unfortunately, being a freelancer he was unable to find any newspaper or wired service that would purchase his photographs. However, a firm believer of the fact that these pictures have stories that deserve to be told, he published the photographs for free himself.
