This week the Yossi Milo Gallery in Chelsea will open an exhibition on photographs by Tim Hetherington, a photojournalist who died last year while covering the conflict in Libya. He was famous for his coverage of American soldiers in Afghanistan and his documentary photographs of the civil war in Liberia. Hetherington’s photographs of American soldiers became the basis for a critically-acclaimed documentary Restrepo that he co-directed with Sebastian Junger. Watch the trailer for Restrepo, read Junger’s obituary that was published in Vanity Fair, and explore Hetherington’s photographs at the Yossi Milo Gallery website. Junger highlights Hetherington’s unique vision but doesn’t explain what he means. What do you think was Hetherington’s vision?
Please post your responses and comments by Saturday, April 28.
You can also post reflections on the condolences page of a public website Remembering Tim.
