War Photographers



The week after the memorial service for Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, twenty photojournalists who covered the wars with Hetherington and Hondros agreed to be photographed for a New York Magazine spread. Here is the link to the original article.

I personally don’t like Chris Anderson’s blur effects on the photos, but the photospread is an interesting family portrait.

  1. Clicked through to the article and photos. Very impressive, a totally completely different way to live and think about your job.

  2. I’m not sure what these pictures do apart from perpetuate the myth as ‘photographer as hero’. I guess they’re nice to look at between the glossy adverts for jewellery & cars.

    Capa’s phrase “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough” seems to get a lot of people killed.

  3. Could it be that the hazy bits were meant to symbolize Hondros’ and Hetherington’s spirits being around their friends/colleagues still?
