Last Photos by Chris Hondros

21 Apr

Pulitzer Prize-nominated photojournalist and general good guy Chris Hondros was killed yesterday while taking photos of heavy street fighting in the Libyan town of Misrata. Lots of touching remembrances have emerged since his death was announced yesterday. His work appeared on the front page of the Washington Post on the day of his death. Hondros and renowned journalist Tim Hetherington were struck by a rocket propelled grenade and died shortly afterwards of their wounds. Two other photographers with them survived, though one was seriously injured.

Hondros submitted some photos shortly before his death. Here are a couple of them. For more, see the BBC.
