Thrilled to have permission from the BBC to share this clip of myself and journalism student Wilton Jackson from the University of Baton Rouge being interviewed on a segment about iconic photography.

The segment was based around the superb photograph from the Baton Rouge protest (July 10th, 2016) by Reuters photographer Jonathan Bachman.

This clip is being used with full permission of the BBC (Global Planning Editor, BBC News, London). This was a live broadcast on July 21st, 2016.

The Life of Chris Hondros

Hondros: A Life in Frames

One of the saddest moments of my life was hearing that Chris Hondros and Tim Hetherington had been killed whilst on assignment in Libya; it was a devastating loss for all of us.

Greg Campbell and Daniel Junge are setting out to make a film about Chris, exploring his work and telling the story behind his powerful and moving work. The film is going to be called “Hondros: A Life in Frames”. As it’s an independent production, the film makers are looking for donations to help fund the film. I think it’s of importance to make this project a reality, so do make a donation if you can.

A Day Without News?

Raising Awareness To The Growing Number Of Journalists Killed & Injured In Armed Conflict Zones

Imagine a day without news; imagine not knowing what’s happening around the world. Conflicts taking place uncovered; perpetrators’ acts of violence going unchecked or the civilian casualties not given a voice.

Journalists, be they writers or photographers, have always put their lives at risk by going to cover wars; to tell the stories and share the pictures. Over recent years, journalists have become legitimate targets in the minds of combatants and in some cases are actively targeted.

Recent years have seen the deaths of far too many amazing people; dedicated to the truth and upholding humanity by covering acts of inhumanity. 2012 was the deadliest year for journalism with a 33% increase in deaths, resulting in 90 colleagues losing their life.
