A photographer whose work I greatly admired before ever picking up a camera myself, and he's completely disappeared from the web.http://www.lukepowell.com/
is dead and has been for a while.
Fantastic imagery from Afghanistan, Zanskar, Sir Lanka and other places.
Used to be associated (I think) with the University of Vermont somehow.
His work can be seen at various places around the web, but I looked for obits and didn't find any, and he seems to have fallen out of view completely.
