Through Hondros's images, we witness a jubilant Liberian rebel fighter exalt during a firefight; a U.S. marine remove Saddam Hussein's portrait from a Iraqi classroom; American troops ride confidentially in a thin-skinned, unarmored Humvee during the first months of the Iraq war, 'the striking eyes of an Afghan village boy,' and
'rambunctious Iraqi schoolgirls in their few free years before a more restricted adulthood.'
Not just a frontline war photographer, but also a committed observer and witness, his work humanizes complex world events and brings shared human experiences to light. Evident in his writings--interspersed throughout the book--Hondros was determined to broaden our understanding of war and its consequences. This unyielding determination led him to take dozens of trips to Iraq and Afghanistan, even as the news turned elsewhere.
Hondros was killed while on assignment in Misrata, Libya on April 20, 2011. Testament documents Hondros' quest to provoke thought and to discover 'a sense of human nature, a sense of shared humanity above the cultural layers we place on ourselves.'
