In the name of journalism, filmmaker Tim Hetherington and Getty Images photojournalist Chris Hondros got themselves killed in Libya this week.
Most of the coverage has been about Hetherington, co-director of the Oscar-nominated documentary Restrepo.
Less has been written about Hondros, who has been toting his cameras from war zone to war zone since the late 90’s. Because we have access to Getty Images, I thought the best way to pay tribute would be to post some of the last people he saw through his lens before he was mortally wounded in Misrata on Wednesday.
Without Chris Hondros and all the photojournalists who capture the world through their lenses, journalism in all of its forms would be as appealing and digestible as day-old dry toast.
