Chris Hondros, Pulitzer Prize nominated war photographer and N.C. State alumni, talks about his experience in Afghanistan with Erica Abed, sophomore in psychology, after a presentation with the University Scholars Program Monday, Nov. 9, 2009 in Withersoon Student Center. Hondros, who works for Getty Images, returned from a trip to Afghanistan Saturday and presented some of the photos from his adventure. “Journalism in general can only be a small sliver of the experience of being there yourself,” Hondros said. “It’s been an extraordinary ride.” Photo by Tim O’Brien
