On this episode Robert speak with a good friend, Nicole Tung, a young and talented photojournalist who has been covering the Arab Spring and all the conflict surrounding the uprisings in Egypt, Libya, and Syria. After graduating from NYU, Nicole jumped into the world of conflict photography head first and received a baptism by fire. Nicole tells the very difficult story of loosing two colleagues in Libya; filmmaker Tim Hetherington and Getty staff photographer Chris Hondros when they were both killed by a mortar that landed near them also injuring a handful of other journalists. Nothing could prepare her for what she went through in Libya. A big thank you up front to Nicole for sharing these difficult stories with us. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this rather intense episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast.
