Chris Hondros

Two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and Getty Images photojournalist Chris Hondros covered most of the world’s major conflicts and disasters since the late 1990s, including work in Kosovo, Afghanistan, the West Bank, Iraq, Haiti, Liberia, Egypt, and Libya. Hondros was not just a front-line war photographer—he was a committed observer and witness. His work humanizes complex world events and brings to light shared human experiences. Evident in his writings, interspersed throughout, Hondros was determined to broaden our understanding of war and its consequences.
