Abstract

This chapter assesses the work of visionary photojournalist Tim Hetherington, a British citizen who lived and worked in the USA, who was killed by shrapnel in the Libyan city of Misrata on April 20th 2011. The author examines the education, career and output of this journalist and argues that it was visionary and groundbreaking. Interviews are featured including accounts of the death of Hetherington by a fellow photographer hurt in the attack and from fellow Academy-Award nominated documentary director, Sebastian Junger. The chapter closely analyses Hetherington's career output, including his work in print publications, exhibitions, documentaries, work for the UN and his more personal experimental film work.
