Twenty-one USAGM journalists have lost their lives in the line of duty.
We have long honored these brave men and women by profiling them on our website, marking the anniversaries of their death on our social media accounts, and of course, on the fallen journalist memorial in USAGM headquarters in Washington, D.C. But we wanted to do more.
The Fallen Journalist Portrait Project uses portraiture to tell the stories of these brave men and women who were killed simply for doing their job.
Each piece uses a different artistic style to coney more about the individuals. Visit the profiles below to learn more about the individual journalists and the artwork that memorializes them.
