Chris Hondros: How He Got that Picture : CJR
From Columbia Journalism Review:
As the world knows by now, the photographers Chris Hondros and Tim  Hetherington were killed on April 20 in Misurata, Libya. Hetherington  was the better known of the two for his documentary, Restrepo.  But we have a special feeling for Hondros, whom we got to meet when he  took part in a CJR panel discussion. In late 2006, for our forty-fifth  anniversary issue, the magazine ran an extended oral history, which  later became a book, Reporting Iraq, an oral history of the war  by the journalists who covered it. It included photos, and every time we  laid our potential choices out we were drawn to Hondros’s work. They  had a recognizable humanity and an almost-beautiful light, even when  they depicted the worst. One photo we chose was taken moments after a  family car had been accidently shot up at a checkpoint. We see a soldier  and a blood-covered little girl who had just lost her parents, not an  image you can quickly get out of your head. When Judith Matloff  interviewed Hondros for our history, we found the backstory of that  photo so compelling that we used it to end the book. Here is the result  of that interview, Chris Hondros on how he got that picture…
