Malek Hadi. Arlington, Texas December 2009 © Allison V. Smith

Earlier this week I photographed Malek Hadi in his apartment in Arlington , Texas for the LA Times. Malek was working as a translator for the US Military in Iraq when he was terribly injured by a homemade bomb. The story is tragic and something "Every American should feel terrible about." A side note: the reporter, T. Christian Miller, and I worked as summer interns in 1993 at the LA Times. He now writes for ProPublica and I am so happy to be reconnected!
