A Libyan War Diary
Award-winning Italian photojournalist Davide Monteleone recently returned from three weeks covering the war in Libya. The April 20 deaths in the coastal city of Misrata of fellow photographers Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros has added a bitter epitaph to this latest assignment. But sadly, there is still a war to be covered, one more story that must not go untold.
Monteleone is indeed the rare photographer who is more than a hunter of images, but a teller of stories. This one takes us from Benghazi and Ras Lanuf to Ajdabia and Ben Gardane. Monteleone is represented by the Italian photo agency Contrasto, a Worldcrunch launch partner.
