Five years ago today, April 20, 2011, in rebel-held Misrata, award-winning photographers Chris Hondros, 41, and Tim Hetherington, 40, were killed by a mortar. Two other photographers suffered injuries in the attack. Hondros and Hetherington courageously photographed in some of the most dangerous places in the world and produced gutsy, unflinching photos. They earned the hard-won label of conflict photographers.
The New York-based Hondros traveled the world's hotspots, including Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, for Getty photo agency, but he also had an eye for life's quiet moments. Here's a look at some of his work.
