    Reportage Online

    NBC News previews “Testament,” new book of words and images by Chris Hondros, the Getty Images photographer who was killed in Libya in 2011.

    [Hondros cared] deeply about the suffering he witnesses, arguing passionately for intervention in Liberia in 2003, but every now and then takes a step back and wonders at the absurdity of his situation. “Why am I here?… Why am I hanging on the side of an Afghan mountain. I’m not in the Army; I didn’t sign up for this. I should be back home, watching TV or canoodling in bed or having an espresso.” Chris died tragically in his prime, but there’s no sign that he in any way regretted his life’s trajectory up until that point: “The satisfaction of photographing our era’s most important issues far outweighs any discomfort, or even fear.”
