War photographers routinely put themselves in grave danger to document the violence of war and conflict. This excellent video talks about the legacy of those photojournalists who have been injured or lost their lives and how others are using their skills to teach young people about photojournalism.
In this story for CBS Sunday Morning, Ted Koppel looks at the lives and legacies of Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, who were killed in 2011 by a mortar targeted at photojournalists. Koppel also takes time to speak with filmmaker Greg Campbell and journalist Sebastian Junger about what it's like in battle zones and with Mike Kamber, who helped create the Bronx Documentary Center. There, he helps teach children about photography and photojournalism. Junger went on to create RISC (Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues), a free program that teaches journalists first aid techniques that can be applied in the event that one of their peers is injured in the field. The video is well worth taking nine minutes to watch, and it's an excellent reminder that the images that help to show us what's happening in war zones are captured by humans who put their own lives on the lines to create them.
