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
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.

Timothy Alistair Hetherington 1970-2011
was killed at the age of 40
the escalating violence
in Misrata, Libya (...).
The canon of work
defines a generation
His eye and ability
for capturing on film
some of the most
of the past decade
was as relentless
as it was unsurpassed.
With a great sense
was driven repeatedly
the ragged, violent
margins of society
to bring back
portraits of people
affected by conflict.
