Pulitzer Winner And WaPo Photojournalist, Michel du Cille, Dies At 58

Michele du Cille

Three time Pulitzer winner and Washington Post photojournalist, Michel du Cille, tragically died yesterday while on assignment in Liberia from an apparent heart attack.

The photographer, who won two Pulitzers with the Miami Herald in the 1980s and one with the Post in 1988, had recently been documenting the ravages of Ebola in Liberia.

The 26- year veteran of the newspaper never shied away from covering the more dangerous, war-torn regions of the world. From Sudan and Afghanistan to the civil wars in Liberia and Sierra Leone in the 1990s, and finally returning to west Africa to cover the Ebola outbreak, Mr. du Cille selflessly put himself in harms way to shed light on the struggles of his fellow human. He was a true journalist and will be missed.
