Street photographer and photojournalist Hughes Leglise-Bataille, or Hugo as he was known to many flickr members, was tragically killed this past Sunday in a car accident in Brazil. His his wife and sister were also amongst the 7 deaths.
Hugo’s agency, Agency Wostok Press, confirmed the tragedy to us early this afternoon.
Both a huge contributor and character around HCSP in the past, Hugo will no doubt be remembered by many for the many discussions he contributed in the group to and his striking images. Messages of condolence are being left by many photographers over on this thread in the group.
Our condolences and thoughts are with the families of those involved.
