We’ve Lost Michel du Cille

The news came out late yesterday – three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Michel du Cille died of an apparent heart attack while on assignment for the Washington Postin Liberia. He was 58.

At the bottom of that story are links to his work – spend time with them. There has always been an intimacy to his work, a humaneness to it that resonated with readers. While he traveled the world and dropped into tragic situations, his work never felt distant. It felt like he listened as much as he saw.

Spend some time with his work.
