Which Way Is the Front Line From Here

Art, Photography

This weekend I watched the emotional HBO Documentary by Sebastian Junger  about the late Tim Hetherington who was his partner in making the academy award nominated documentary Restrepo.  I can not adequately express how beautiful, raw and inspiring Which Way Is the Front Line From Here- Life and Time of Tim Hethertington  is and if you aren’t familiar with the work of photojournalist Tim Hetherington, who died in Syria on assignment, I strongly urge you to watch this film. It reveals a man who wasn’t just a documenter, but a humanitarian, on a quest to create a bridge from man to man, story to truth. _65350877_hetherington_hbo

I have no desire to be a kind of war firefighter flying from war zone to war zone. I have no … really I don’t really care about photography. I have no interest in photography per se. I’m interested in reaching people with ideas and engaging them with views of the world. Tim Hetherington
