Junger crafted a fine tribute to a fallen friend. Larger than life, Tim Hetherington seemed to buck the war-photographer-as-adrenaline-junkie stereotype, though one can't help but feel that seeking that rush was part of his demise. However, he also comes across a true humanitarian, and a guy I would have liked to have a drink with. Truth-seeking drove his artistic work, but the truth failed to set him free. RIP.
Tim Hetherington's work aims to break the "feedback loop" of images of young men at war posing with guns imitating other young men with guns by depicting intimate and human scenes (i.e. sleeping soldiers & man eden). Most importantly he dismisses the notion that documentarians have no human obligation to help a subject about to be killed and risks his own life to do so. It's not about the photo, it's about humanity.
