Featured Photojournalists: Daniel Berehulak, Andrea Bruce, Bryan Denton, Kevin Frayer, Chris Hondros & Tomás Munita

This exhibit reflects on the work of photojournalists who bring to light shared human experiences. Through the lens of family, we’ve asked the photographers to share images that reflect the concept of family from their work in documenting some of the most important news stories of our times.

Each photojournalist represented here has been awarded the Chris Hondros Fund & Getty Images Award, which celebrates the work of two-time Pulitzer Prize Finalist and photojournalist Chris Hondros, who was killed April 20, 2011 on assignment in Misurata, Libya. As a photographer working in the world’s most difficult and dangerous places, Chris had the distinctive ability to connect his viewers with people embroiled in far-flung and sometimes obscure conflicts. He recognized the shared humanity among those affected by war, regardless of culture or beliefs, and he was determined to share their challenges to the wider world in the hopes of provoking thought, raising awareness and fostering understanding.

One of Chris’ skills was his continuous endeavor to humanize world events. The concept of family as documented by these photojournalists celebrates and honors the commonalities and shared humanity among us.

    Chris Hondros Fund

    The Chris Hondros Fund was established to honor two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and Getty Images photojournalist Chris Hondros, killed on April 20, 2011 while on assignment in Misurata, Libya. The fund’s purpose is to honor Hondros’s legacy by highlighting the ways in which photojournalism brings to light shared human experiences which might otherwise go unreported or unnoticed. As part of the fund’s Education and Awareness program, we support photography and visual education for youth—particularly in underserved communities in New York City. We support individual photographers, students of photography, and nonprofits.
