Fallen Photographers Embedded in Danger Zone

The deaths of award-winning photojournalists Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros on April 20, 2011 in a mortar attack at Misrata, Libya, underscored the heavy toll war exacts on soldiers and civilians alike. Dupont Award winner Hetherington, whose book Infidel featured photos from the Korengal Valley, Afghanistan (see photo above), co-directed with journalist Sebastian Junger the Oscar-nominated movie documentary Restrepo, which won a Sundance film festival award.

Hondros’ work for Getty Images receive war photography’s highest honor, the Robert Capa Gold Medal. Both photojournalists were brilliant at showing the “texture of war,” as Hetherington put it, a combination of active combat and sometimes-boring daily life. Hetherington’s interview video from November 2010 features highlights of his work and insights as a photographer.
