via Remembering the photographic work of Michel du Cille (1956 – 2014).

Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post photographer Michel du Cille died of an apparent heart attack on Thursday in Liberia where he was on assignment covering the Ebola outbreak, the newspaper said.

The Post said du Cille, 58, collapsed after hiking back from a village where he and Post reporter Justin Jouvenal were reporting. Du Cille was taken to a hospital two hours away where he was declared dead.

“We are all heartbroken. We have lost a beloved colleague and one of the world’s most accomplished photographers,” Post executive editor Martin Baron said in a statement.Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 10.28.53 AM

WASHINGTON, DC – JUNE 24, 2014: The scene with the Washington Monument after people lit candles to form the letters into the words, “So All Can Vote” to support Voting Rights during a vigil on June 24, 2014 in Washington, DC. The vigil was a memorial to Andrew Goodman, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner, who were killed in 1964 by the KKK in Mississippi. The vigil included a display of 3,000 candles at the base of the Lincoln Memorial near the reflecting pool.
