I just found this piece, a great great piece, on photographers covering stories in conflict zones, most notably and recently, Libya, Syria, and Egypt. ┬áThe story is about Guy Martin, whom the New York Times calls “an emerging photojournalist,” and his life as a photojournalists who always found a way to be in the middle of the action. The piece includes details given to the Times by close friends. Martin was recently injured in the attack that killed Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, as well as injuring Michael Christopher Brown. Due to his injuries sustained in the attack, Martin had to undergo extensive ┬ásurgery.
