R: Timothy Alistair Hetherington        1970-2011

 

Some very tragic news surfaces today

as co-director of the Oscar-nominated documentary Restrepo,

Tim Hetherington has been killed in Libya.

 

Hetherington was a war correspondent

and was with a team of other war photographers,

Chris Hondros and Guy Martin,

covering the conflict in Libya.

 

The group were in Misurata

which became besieged on Wednesday

and amid the violence Hetherington was killed.

 

Hondros and Martin

are in severe critical conditions

in hospital.

 

This is of course very unsettling,

The New York Times have said

that several hundred Libyan civilians

have been killed

in the Misurata area of Libya.

 

Hetherington’s final tweet

shows the madness of the situation there:

In besieged Libyan city of Misrata.

Indiscriminate shelling by Qaddafi forces.

No sign of NATO.

 

Our thoughts and condolences

are with Tim Hetherington’s family

at this very sad moment.

Beyond the Myth of the War Photographer

In “Shooting War,”

the psychiatrist Anthony Feinstein

explores the complexity

of photographers’ day-to-day work

covering conflict and human depravity.

Timothy Alistair Hetherington        1970-2011

 

The photographer

and film-maker

Tim Hetherington

was killed at the age of 40

while covering

the escalating violence

in Misrata, Libya (...).

 

The canon of work

he bequeaths

defines a generation

of reportage.

 

His eye and ability

for capturing on film

some of the most

disturbing events

of the past decade

was as relentless

as it was unsurpassed.

 

With a great sense

of self-deprecation

and humanity,

Hetherington

was driven repeatedly

to explore

the ragged, violent

margins of society

to bring back

portraits of people

profoundly

affected by conflict.
