Every profession has its giants....those who set the standards for all the rest. In photojournalism, that person was former Miami Herald photographer Michel du Cille. Thursday night, his friends and colleagues learned that Michel - a three-time Pulitzer Prize winner - died of an apparent heart attack while covering the Ebola crisis in Liberia for the Washington Post.
