Michel du Cille
Michel and I had been friends for over twenty years. He was with me in Tokyo in 1998, at the opening of my first Pulitzer Prize Photography exhibition. He was the kind of friend who shared his good news and spared you of any down side.
Last November, I reached him in Addis Ababa to congratulate him on his EBOLA cover story in the NPPA magazine. I said it deserved a Pulitzer. On December 8, I emailed that I thought his EBOLA coverage should be submitted to the Overseas Press Club for the Feature Photography Award. On Wednesday, December 10, he emailed that he thought it was a good idea and he’d be home for Christmas.
On Thursday, December 11, Michel died of an apparent heart attack in Liberia covering the EBOLA outbreak. It was his third trip to West Africa.
