Finding Chris Hondros

Whenever Chris Hondros returned to New York City after a long assignment, it was like a roving professor holding office hours. One meeting at Caffe Reggio in Greenwich Village would morph into drinks or dinner with out-of-towners visiting Brooklyn. Friends came and went, but the discussion was always rich and lively. That’s what I miss the most about him.


Sunday Times Dedication To Chris Hondros, Tim Hetherington

Gerry Souter was a photography student from the Art Institute who came to the work as a press photographer for the Chicago Tribune in 1964. He stayed two years. In that time, he had a view of photojournalism that we will never see again. Since that time, he has become a media consultant and prolific author, writing over 40 books with his wife Janet.      Recently he privately responded to one of my blog posts, sharing some of the history of photojournalism as practiced in Chicago about 47 years ago. It was fascinating, so I asked for a “10 Questions” interview about life as a press photographer in the early 60’s.
