Kenneth Jarecke throughout his career has traveled extensively. Having worked in over fifty countries, he’s reporting on tumultuous elections in Haiti, to the fall of the Iron Curtain. He’s put a sympathetic face on the plight of child soldiers in Mozambique to the suffering refugees trying to escape a drowning, post-Katrina New Orleans. During the winter of 1991, TIME sent Jarecke on a three-month assignment to Saudi Arabia, where he covered the allied war effort in the Persian Gulf. He would eventually spend time on patrol and cover combat duty with the U.S. Army’s 18th Airborne Artillery Corps. His photograph of an incinerated Iraqi soldier, made on Highway 8 north of Kuwait City, stirred a storm of controversy. It remains one of the photographic icons of the Gulf War. While making his home with his wife Souad and their four children in rural Montana, Jarecke continues to shoot cover stories for various magazines on wide ranging important subjects.
