RIP Tim Hetherington

Tragic news about war photographer / director Tim Hetherington being killed by an RPG attack in Libya. Such a shame. I crossed paths with Tim at Sundance last year when he and co-director Sebastian Junger were promoting their oscar nominated film “Restrepo”. I found him to be very down to earth and genuine in our brief shoot and I respect him enormously for his conviction in doing such dangerous and beautiful work. It is certainly a big loss to the photo community for those who knew him or not. Sebastian Junger wrote a great heartfelt piece in Vanity Fair about the passing of his friend and collaborator.
