On July 16th, 2021, photojournalist Danish Siddiqui was killed while on assignment in Afghanistan working for Reuters News and Media. He was embedded with the Afghan special forces when they came under attack by the Taliban.

Siddiqui (b. 1983 in New Dehli) joined Reuters in 2010 and covered key events across the Middle East and Asia, including the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Hong Kong protests and the Nepal earthquakes. He also photographed the lives of ordinary people, from those living with the long-term health implications of the Bhopal disaster to young actors dreaming of Bollywood stardom. In 2018, Danish received the Pulitzer prize for feature photography as part of the Reuters team documenting the Rohingya refugee crisis.

His untimely death serves as a daily reminder of the courage and selflessness that journalists exhibit around the world as they work to capture what can be uncomfortable or painful realities. Siddiqui’s photography laid bare the truth of what was happening in the world in its most unvarnished form making it difficult for us all to dismiss or ignore.
