Here I am - The story of Tim Hetherington, war photographer
Tim Hetherington (1970-2011) was one of the world's most distinguished and dedicated photojournalists, whose career was tragically cut short when he died in a mortar blast while covering the Libyan Civil War. He was far less interested in professional glory than revealing to the world the realities of people living in extremely difficult circumstances. Tim won many awards for his war reporting, and was nominated for an Academy Award for his critically acclaimed documentary, Restrepo.
Hetherington's dedication to his career led him time after time into war zones, and unlike some other journalists, he did not pack up after the story had broken. After the civil war ended in Liberia, West Africa, Tim stayed on for three years, helping the United Nations track down human rights criminals. His commitment to getting the story out and his compassion for those affected by war was unrivalled.
Alan Huffman tells British photographer, Tim Hetherington's life story, and through it analyses what it means to be a war reporter in the twenty-first century.
