How do you stay safe, stay ethical and tell good stories when you're on deadline covering violence and dealing with children and foreign cultures? Through diverse work on lives touched by gangs, paramilitaries, earthquakes and HIV, Donna DeCesare shows how collaboration with her photographs' "protagonists" is the key to making powerful and responsible images.
