PICTURES ON THE RADIO compiles the work of David Gilkey, a celebrated conflict photographer who helped NPR bring vivid life to big and small stories with global impact. Known for chronicling pain and beauty in war and conflict, he was on assignment in Helmand, Afghanistan in 2016 when he and NPR's Afghan interpreter, Zabihullah Tamanna were killed by a Taliban ambush of their convoy. Considered one of the best photojournalists in the world, his death made headlines around the country and the globe.

The nine chapters in PICTURES ON THE RADIO include photographs from assignments in Afghanistan, Haiti, and Gaza covering war, natural disasters, and political strife, but also a surreal journey on the tran-Siberian railroad, a voyage down the Ganges, and coverage of American war-veterans showcasing Gilkey's range as a photojournalist whose work captured the strength and fragility of our humanity and our planet. An essay by NPR correspondents--including Jason Beaubien, Ari Shapiro, David Greene, Julie McCarthy, and Eric Westervelt--who accompanied David on assignment introduces each chapter of award-winning photographs and an afterword by Alyda Gilkey paints a portrait of the man behind the camera.

PICTURES ON THE RADIO continues David Gilkey's lifelong mission of connecting Americans to the frontlines far beyond their shores. The drama, beauty and dignity of his subjects continue to move the heart and the conscience.

 

作者簡介

David Patrick Gilkey began his professional career in South Africa where he joined some of the world’s most famous photojournalists covering violence in the townships. A half a dozen wars later (Somalia, Rwanda, Kosovo, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq), David hit his stride working for the Detroit Free Press. While there his coverage of the Michigan Marine unit through an entire deployment to Iraq won an Emmy Award.

David joined NPR in 2007, continuing to cover conflict and international news. During his tenure at NPR, he received the George Polk Award for his coverage of the U.S. military, won the Robert F. Kennedy award for his coverage of Haiti, the Peabody Award and Edward R. Murrow Award for his coverage of Ebola, and was named Still Photographer of the Year by the White House News Photographers Association.

Photo Editor: Chip Somodevilla met David Gilkey at the Detroit Free Press and they covered the Iraq war together. He is now a senior staff photographer for Getty Images based in Washington, DC, covering US politics. Among the many awards Somodevilla and his work have won are the Michigan Press Photographer of the Year, Political Photo of the Year and Photographer of the Year from The White House News Photographers Association. He and his team at Getty were finalists for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize and he was named Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographers Association in 2019. A graduate of the University of North Texas, he lives in Maryland with his wife, son and daughter.

Photo Editor: Ariel Zambelich worked extensively with David Gilkey as the Supervising Editor of Photography for NPR Visuals. Currently she’s the Senior Photo Editor at The Intercept in New York, where she collaborates with the newsroom to tell investigative stories through photojournalism, illustration, and design. Her photojournalism has appeared in the New York Times, The Atlantic, New York Times Magazine, the Washington Post, Bloomberg Businessweek, Etiqueta Negra, M le magazine du Monde, and The Fader. She was also a photo editor and photographer for Wired, and co-director of a documentary photography gallery in San Francisco.

Text Editor: Quil Lawrence met David Gilkey in 2002. They both covered Iraq and Afghanistan for the next ten years. Quil served as NPR’s Bureau Chief in Baghdad and Kabul and reported from throughout the Middle East. In 2012, Quil returned to the U.S. to cover veterans for NPR, a beat that he developed with David. Quil won a Robert F. Kennedy Award and a Gracie Award for his reporting on American war veterans. Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America gave him their 2019 Award for Leadership in Journalism. He is the author of Invisible Nation: How the Kurds’ Quest for Statehood is Shaping Iraq and the Middle East. Quil lives in Brooklyn with his family.

Designer: Bonnie Briant is a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she studied Photography and Imaging. Bonnie’s versatility has allowed her to design award-winning books about everything from Disco Night 9-11 by Peter Van Agtmael about the War on Terror to The Family Imprint by Nancy Borowick, intimate portraits of a family’s trials with cancer. She has worked with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bronx Documentary Center, Aperture, Damiani, Rizzoli and powerHouse. Photo District News (PDN) Photo Annual Awards have honored at least one of her books every year since 2014.
