Fond farewell

Posted on Fri, Aug 24, 2012 at 10:10 AM

After some 12 years working on-and-off as the Indy Photo Editor Chad Harder has chosen to move on from his tiny basement office here. Chad has a long and distinguished history at the paper and Montana Headwall magazine, where he also served as photo editor.

He's been through a lot for us. In 2000, Missoula police used pepper spray on him while he documented the downtown riot spawned by the Hell's Angels' visit. In 2009, he nearly lost his right hand while on assignment for Headwall. Since then, he's made a remarkable recovery.

For those of you who have enjoyed Chad's work over the years, we've assembled a slideshow featuring, in Chad's words, some "fairly random images over the last three and a half years." Thanks, Chad.
