Tim Hetherington

The death of Tim Hetherington, and of Chris Hondros, this week in Misrata is a huge loss to the industry, and the world. Both men were killed while covering the violence in Libya, attempting to show the world stories it needs to know.

Both men should be celebrated for their contributions, and the lives that were affected positively, as a result of the much deserved attention given their stories generated.

I just wanted to share an article written by Sebastian Junger to Tim Hetherington in Vanity Fair. Junger and Hetherington spent a year in the most dangerous location in Afghanistan together, telling the story of the soldiers fighting there. "Restrepo" is one of the most powerful documentaries I have ever seen, and was a very passionate, and important film, I'd encourage you to check it out.
