My hero: Gerda Taro by Kassia Meador

My Hero, the regular that’s best read with Dave Grohl playing softly in your head, throws up a mix of mentors. Some riders choose family, others stay within their sport, and others choose someone from a totally different sphere who’s impacted on their life. This week the surfer, photographer and fashion designer Kassia Meador has chosen the war photographer Gerda Taro. Here’s why

I have a lot of heroes but I think the one I will speak about now is Gerda Taro. She was an incredible war photographer and died doing what she loved and informing people all over the world about how heavy war is… She is for sure a hero of mine and pushed everything to the limits!!! And her amazing images will live on forever.
