Foley, Gillis, and Brabo were thrown in jail. They were released forty-four days later, but Hammerl’s death was a turning point for Foley, who worried that the Mad Max mentality that got Hammerl killed had been driven by macho competitiveness. So when Jim returned to a conflict zone after a restless three-month stint in the States, it was not to the front lines but to Aleppo, where he became one of the first to document civilian protests against Bashar al-Assad. Clare Gillis relates that Jim’s need to tell their story was so urgent that he would give his photographs and videos to news agencies for free, just to get it out. “Without these videos and photos, we can’t tell the world how bad it is,” Foley explains, pleading with us to understand the embattled civilians’ plight.
