“As a photographer, you need to develop a way of working that suits your personality but also allows you to bring out the sort of subject matter that you think is important. –Tim Hetherington (Which Way is the Front Line from Here?)
- What I’m watching and photographer I’m admiring: Which Way is the Front Line from Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington, is an incredible documentary about the life and the untimely death of war photojournalist, Tim Hetherington, directed by his close friend, Sebastian Junger. It’s moving, sad, inspiring, and definitely worth watching. Highly recommended. Also take some time to check out some of Tim’s photos. His photography is inspiring because you can see the human connection that he was able to achieve through his work.
