Slain NPR Photographer Recently Explained the Perils of Covering War

Slain NPR Photographer Recently Explained the Perils of Covering WarAward-winning NPR photographer David Gilkey, who was killed in Afghanistan on Sunday, previously spoke to NPR about the dangers of covering war in a Facebook video that was recorded live for the social media website three weeks ago. “One of the amazing things about being embedded [in a combat zone] … is just how intimate you are with the subjects,” Gilkey said in reference to a photo of soldiers questioning a man they suspected of planting roadside bombs. NPR foreign editor Greg Myre responded to Gilkey by asking him questions about his own safety when navigating through a landscape in which roadside bombs are a part of everyday life.
