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.

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

  3. 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.

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