BATTLE FOR LIBYA photographed by Remi Ochlik. An opposition fighter rest under a rebellion flag in the middle of the battlefield oil town Ras Lanouf in Libya.
“Ochlik received his highest accolade less than two weeks before he died when he won a first prize at the World Press Photo awards for a series of photos [seen above] on the battle for Libya.”
According to Katherine Lowe (96, standing second from the right), the famous picture of women firefighters using a hose following the attack on Pearl Harbor did not actually happen on December 7, 1941. The photo was “likely taken during a training exercise” at the Pearl Harbor Navy Shipyard where the women worked as civilians.
Additionally, MSNBC reports the photo was “a Navy publicity photo taken to showcase the roles of women during the war.”
