The exhibition, “Reporters Without Borders and Pictures on the Radio Present A Tribute to David Gilkey,” honors and remembers the photography of Gilkey, who was killed along with NPR’s Afghan interpreter Zabihullah Tamanna, on June 5, 2016.

A Portland native, Gilkey studied photojournalism at OSU and worked on the Daily Barometer newspaper and provided photos for the yearbook. Gilkey was 50 when he died. His career as a photojournalist chronicled pain and beauty in war and conflict, including genocide in Rwanda, famine in Somalia, the earthquake in Haiti, the Ebola epidemic in Liberia and war in Gaza, Iraq, Afghanistan and the Balkans.

Later that evening, a panel discussion on the state of local and regional journalism today will be held from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Memorial Union Horizon Room. The panel will be moderated by Christopher McKnight Nichols, OSU Director of the Center for the Humanities, and will be comprised of Claudine Kent, David Greene, NPR sports reporter Tom Goldman and KLCC’s Anni Katz. The event is free and open to the public.
