YEAR: 2003
AWARD NAME: The John Faber Award 2003
RECIPIENT: Chris Hondros
AFFILIATION: Getty Images News Service
HONORED WORK: “Chaos Enveloping: Liberia’s Deadly Summer”

As one of the few who stayed behind to document Monrovia’s descent into total chaos as the rebel forces took over the capital, Hondros created graphic images that put you right at the heart of the struggle. The lawlessness and brutality are pervasive and relentless and are captured with great skill under the most harrowing conditions.
