Here I Am: The Story of Tim Hetherington, War Photographer (Hardback)Dr Alan Huffman (author)
Hardback Published: 14/02/2013
- Not available
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. Tim won many awards for his war reporting, and was nominated for an Academy Award for the 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. In "Here I Am," journalist and freelance writer Alan Huffman tells Hetherington s life story, and through it analyzes what it means to be a war reporter in the twenty-first century. Huffman recounts Hetherington s life from his first interests in photography, through his critical role in reporting the Liberian Civil War, to his tragic death in Libya. Huffman also traces Hetherington s photographic milestones, from his iconic and prize-winning photographs of Liberian children, to the celebrated portraits of sleeping U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. "Here I Am" explores the risks, challenges, and thrills of war reporting, and is a testament to the unique work of people like Hetherington, who risk their lives to give a voice to people ravaged by war."
