The headlines yesterday were about the death of Restrepo director Tim Hetheringtom in Libya and the injury of Getty Images photographer Chris Hondros. This morning word came that Hondros, 41, who lived in Brooklyn Heights has died.
NY Post: American photojournalist Chris Hondros, 41, who was engaged to be married this August and lived in Brooklyn Heights, filed a series of amazing photos before his death that captured the harrowing battle for the rebel stronghold of Misrata.
He died alongside British-born freelance shooter Tim Hetherington, 40, an Oscar-nominated director who worked out of Williamsburg.
“Chris never shied away from the front line, having covered the world’s major conflicts throughout his distinguished career, and his work in Libya was no exception,” said Jodi Einhorn, a rep for Hondros’ employer, Getty Images.
