Camille Lepage, a 26 year old photojournalist who dedicated her burgeoning career to reporting what the media seemed to ignore, was killed Tuesday while on assignment documenting the conflict in Central African Republic. As well as some amazing photography from her most recent work in CAR, Lepage worked in South Sudan on stories about young men drawn into the war, birth in a refugee camp, and less formal photography on instagram.

Looking at the links, I recognize her work -- she was a very good photographer. This is sad news, I wish the world was not so dangerous for journalists, especially in the last few years.

there are so few people trying to tell these stories that losing one person effectively cuts off an entire world. a young, talented person dying because they want to give voice to the voiceless is the saddest thing i can thing of.

I shudder to think what the end of her life was likely like. I am so sorry for her friends and family.

She was brave and her death is an outrage. It always saddens me when someone dies doing important work like this.

It's so very sad. And somewhat ironic, that so many people now know her name, and who she was and what she cared about, but the hundreds dying anonymously in CAR and elsewhere will remain numbers on a page to most of the world.
