The Enduring Work of Tim Hetherington

In January, I saw the Sundance premiere of  Which Way is the Frontline From Here?  produced by Sebastian Junger about his partner and friend Tim Hetherington, the master war photographer. Sundance also organized an exhibition of Hetherington’s photography that was super-impressive.

Hetherington died covering the Libyan revolution in 2011. At that time, the New York Time’s paid tribute to him in a fine blog posting of their own:  Parting Glance: Tim Hetherington. The documentary film is very powerful and the entire Sundance audience at the screening I attended stayed for the Q&A with Junger. I understand that MountainFilm in Telluride may screen the film during their annual gathering in May. 

After re-reading the Times tribute and viewing some of Hetherington’s engaging and haunting photographs again, I was reminded of why we are trying to develop our media distribution platform for exceptional photo/video producers.
