I had the privilege of meeting him (briefly) and hearing him speak at an exhibition in Pittsburgh in 2007. He was an amazing photographer and I think everyone would enjoy seeing his work. He immortalized the struggles and the courage of people living in the turmoil in war. You may not recognize his name but most Americans will remember his photo of the American flag being burned in Pakistan.
Pay tribute to a great photojournalist by taking a few minutes to look through the galleries on his website Chris Hondros
He was 41 years old and was killed with his friend, and fellow photojournalist Tim Hetherington who had been nominated for an Oscar this year for a documentary about US troops in Afghanistan. It is called “Restrepo.” His site is Tim Hetherington
It appears all his images have been removed except for the rotating ones on the front page.
Please pray for the families of these two great photographers who daily put their lives at risk to document history as it happens.
AND PLEASE REMEMBER: Photojournalists document news and history. They are not there to make political statements for either side. Please do not make any derogatory comments about them shooting war photography. Any such comments are totally unacceptable.
