RIP Dmitry Chebotayev

Our hearts go out to all those who knew and loved Dmitry.

We just got this sad news from Carlo Montali, Editorial Director of World Picture Network:

Photographer Dmitry Chebotayev died this weekend in Iraq, killed by a roadside bomb while riding with US soldiers. Chechnya, Lebanon, Golan Heights, Iraq… While Dmitry was an experienced conflict photographer, he was killed at a time and place where experience means so little for members of the press. As a photo contributor to WpN, people in contact with him at the agency remember Dmitry as a positive and thoughtful person. We at WpN would like to convey our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones.

Our hearts go out to all those who knew and loved Dmitry.
