Friday Prayers is a six-part podcast series that features New Zealand journalists who played a significant role in reporting the events in Christchurch terrorist attack. Part four; George Heard.
George is a self-trained visual journalist and is no stranger to throwing himself into tragic events to make sure there’s a visual account of what has happened – but the March 15 attacks were something on a scale he had not encountered before.
According to his colleagues, he was the first photographer outside the mosque – and captured imagery that will probably never see the light of day.
In this episode, George Heard talks to Rev Frank Ritchie about running on adrenaline, recording history and the processing that followed.
