Washington Post photographer dies on assignment in Liberia

A photographer covering the Ebola story in Liberia for the Washington Post, Michel du Cille, collapsed and died of an apparent heart attack. The winner of three Pulitzer prizes, he was 58.

The Post’s executive editor Martin Baron sent a statement to the newspaper staff in which he called Du Cille “a beloved colleague and one of the world’s most accomplished photographers”.

He spent several years as the Post’s director of photography and as an assistant managing editor.

Born in 1956 in Kingston, Jamaica, Du Cille moved to the US, to Georgia, in the 1970s. His wife, Nikki Kahn, is also a Post photographer.
