Victor George (April 10, 1955—July 9, 2001) was a photographer from Kerala, India who died in 2001 while taking pictures of landslides in Kerala Geography of Kerala#Natural Hazards in Kerala. He was working in an Indian Publication (Malayala Manorama, NewsPaper) as Chief Photo Editor. His works include Portrait of "Rain". Victor set out from Kottayam, on July 9, 2001, to cover a landslide that had claimed three lives near Thodupuzha in Idukki district. That afternoon, the torrential rains unleashed a second landslide. Cameramen and reporters, who had gathered on the slopes of Venniyani Mala, ran for their lives. But Victor lingered, unmindful of the rocks hurtling down or the shouts of his colleagues, his camera focussed on the diabolic beauty. In a flash, he had disappeared ... lost in the rushing water and avalanche of rocks that tore down the hillside.

For two days, they scoured Venniyani Mala, while people all over Kerala watched, hoped and prayed. The third day, a friend saw fingers raised above the mud, a hundred metres below the landslide. Army men and villagers gently retrieved the body, the broken strap of the camera coiled around the neck.

For Victor, there was drama in the ordinary and the everyday, not just in events making headlines. His acute eye could frame a riveting picture from an elderly pavement dweller's defeated face or an excited crowd at a village football tournament. He found as much lyricism in a group of crows perched on a bridge in the rain as the gazelle-like stride of P.T. Usha burning up the tracks.
