#NPR mourns the loss of photojournalist #David #Gilkey, who died last week in Afghanistan. He and #Zabihullah Tamanna, journalist and interpreter, were killed when their vehicle was hit by an RPG (sad that we all know what that acronym means).

In 2008, Gilkey had a very different assignment here in the #Ozarks – photographing fiddlers in Mountain View, Arkansas. Gilkey and David Green attended the annual Mountain View folk festival and reported, “In Arkansas, Fiddlers Try To Preserve Local Tunes.” The story and a slide show of Gilkey’s photographs are still online:  http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=94076332
