On Wednesday, Chris Hondros, a photojournalist for Getty Images, was killed along with Tim Hetherington, co-director of the Academy Award nominated documentary Restrepo, in the city of Misrata while covering battles between rebels and Libyan government forces.
On a January evening in 2005, while on patrol with U.S. troops in the northwestern Iraqi town of Tal Afar, Hondros captured this memorable image of a little girl, covered in the blood of her dead parents.
"We share a huge visual memory bank, mostly through painting and other images in history," he said. "I think when a modern photograph taps into those, sometimes very subliminally, it makes people respond." (Watch a slideshow narrated by Hondros in 2007, via NPR)
