Photos shot by Fabio Bucciarelli March 1-7. They document events and people caught up in the uprising by opposition forces challenging the 40-year rule of Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi.
About his experience shooting in Libya, Bucciarelli says, "When I arrived in Benghazi after crossing the Egyptian border, I found a cheering city. People were celebrating the newly conquered freedom. Once I reached the front, I saw in people's eyes the eagerness of fighting for their freedom. I saw men willing to sacrifice their lives for obtaining such liberty."
Bucciarelli is a graduate of Politecnico in Turin, Italy and Politecnica in Valencia, Spain. He now devotes his energies to freelance photojournalism. He's covered Italy's Abruzzo earthquake, Iran's 30th anniversary of the revolution and now, the battle in Libya.
