Chris Hondros: Photographs of Conflict
Start Date: 9/11/2014 All Day
End Date: 11/15/2014

Event Description:
Presented by NCSU Gregg Museum of Art & Design.

Fayetteville, NC native Chris Hondros earned his B.A. in English at NC State (in 1993) and completed his Masters in Visual Communications at Ohio University before becoming an award-winning staff photographer for Getty Images. He was killed on the morning of April 20, 2011, while photographing in Misrata, Libya.

By then, he had already photographed most of the world's major conflict zones for two decades, including Kosovo, Angola, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Kashmir, the West Bank, Iraq, and Liberia. His unforgettable images – both strikingly beautiful and powerfully stark – had appeared on the front of Newsweek, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Los Angeles Times.

 In 2004 Hondros was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for his work in Liberia, and in 2006 was awarded the Robert Capa Gold Medal, war photography's highest honor, for demonstrating “exceptional courage and enterprise” in his work from Iraq. American Photo magazine named him a “Hero of Photography” in 2007. 

Hondros had a solo exhibition of his photography at the Gregg Museum in the fall of 2005. The Gregg is now proud to be able to help make an exhibition in his hometown possible.
