“A Way Home” brings to light the ways in which communities across the globe define ‘home’. Through a compassionate and telling lens, these photojournalists examine the effects that migration, conflict, political strife and humanitarian crises inflict on individuals’ concepts of home.
These photographers—all Chris Hondros Fund grantees—demonstrate a distinct ability to connect with communities and bring complex issues into the public eye to raise awareness and foster understanding.
The Chris Hondros Fund & Getty Images Award celebrates the work of two-time Pulitzer Prize Finalist and photojournalist Chris Hondros, who was killed April 20, 2011 on assignment in Misurata, Libya. As a photographer working in the world’s most difficult and dangerous places, Hondros strived to humanize world events in hopes of provoking thought.
The concept of ‘home’ as documented by these consummate photojournalists celebrates and honors the shared humanity among us.
The Chris Hondros Fund was established to honor Pulitzer Prize-nominated photojournalist Chris Hondros, who covered most of the world’s conflicts since the late 1990s, including those in Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. He was killed on April 20, 2011 while on assignment in Misurata, Libya.
The Fund seeks to continue and preserve Hondros’ distinct ability to bring a visual history of shared human experiences into the public eye.
To this end, the Fund supports and advances the work of photojournalists who espouse Hondros’ legacy and vision, and raises awareness and educates the public of the issues facing photojournalists reporting from conflict areas around the world.
