News Images and Stories

NPR had a story today about a photojournalist Chris Hondros. The first line of the story from the NPR website:

"Chris Hondros has just returned from his ninth tour of Iraq. He's not a soldier. He's an award-winning news photographer for Getty Images."

The NPR story centers on one particularly powerful and painful image that he has brought to the world. War is unimaginably horrible.

The Getty Images Website, with more photos and blog entries from Chris:

I admire these photos and blog entries - they describe What Is without message, evoking only that which we all carry in every cell in our bodies. Thank you Chris, I am glad you have returned without bodily harm.
