Rémi Ochlik, the French photojournalist who took the photo above, was killed on Feb. 22, 2012, by Syrian government shelling in the opposition stronghold city of Homs. Ochlik, who was 28 years old, had already distinguished himself as one of the best conflict photographers of his generation, winning a 2012 World Press Photo prize for his work in Libya.
Above, an opposition fighter on the frontlines outside of Ras Lanouf, Libya, on March 11, 2011, in one of Ochlik's prize-winning photos. In memory of his life and career, ended far too early, we present a collection of his haunting images from the Libyan frontlines.
