    'This story places the blame for the decimation of elephants worldwide squarely at the feet of religion. There is an obsession amongst devotees, amongst ivory buyers, for this product….my question is: how does it deify god to decimate these creatures? - Brent Stirton, Photojournalist

    Testament - Chris Hondros

    Testament is a collection of photographs and writing by late photojournalist Chris Hondros spanning over a decade of coverage from most of the world’s conflicts since the late 1990s, including Kosovo, Afghanistan, the West Bank, Iraq, Liberia, Egypt, and Libya.

    Hondros was not just a front-line war photographer, but also a committed observer and witness, and 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.

    This video introduces a selection of powerful images taken from Testament accompanied by audio of an interview with Chris, first broadcast on NPR on March 26, 2007, as part of the interview ‘A War Photographer’s View of Iraq’.

    Music in the video is Concerto grosso in F minor, Opus 1, no. 8 by Pietro Locatelli (1695-1764) performed by American Virtuosi Baroque Orchestra under the musical direction of Kenneth Hamrick. Kenneth and Chris worked together on a series entitled ‘Sound and Vision’ which encompassed live music performance alongside projections of Chris’ images. A special thanks to both NPR and Kenneth Hamrick for their contribution to this piece.

    Testament is now available for purchase, with all Getty Images’ proceeds from the sale of the book being donated to The Chris Hondros Fund.
    Inspired by his life, work and vision, The Fund endeavors to bring light to shared human experiences by supporting and protecting photojournalists. For more information please visit

    Natalie Naccache Joins Reportage

    The Lebanese-British photographer Natalie Naccache, based in Beirut, has joined our roster of featured contributors. She was previously part of Reportage Emerging Talent program and her photographs have been published in places such as The New York Times, Le Monde, Der Spiegel, The Independent, Marie Claire and more. She also recently participated in this year’s Noor Masterclass.

    One of Natalie’s longstanding interests has been Lebanese high society. Her recent photoessay, titled “Paris of the East,” examines debutante balls and other extravagant events that serve as escapes from the harsher realities of life in Lebanon. But Natalie’s photos pose the question: Is the party over soon? See more of this work on the Reportage Web site.

    Robert Nickelsberg at UC Berkeley on April 15

    As a photographer for Time Magazine and the New York Times, Robert Nickelsberg gained a close-up look at the last 25 years of Afghan history, as it emerged from war with the Soviet Union to civil war to Taliban rule and, finally, to America’s war after 2001. His collected work appears in his new book “Afghanistan: A Distant War.” On April 15, he will be speaking about his work in the country with UC Berkley journalism chair Lydia Chavez and Tim McGirk of the school’s Investigative Reporting Project.
