In one picture of an orange, Tim Hetherington told so much of the story of the Liberian civil war. His images taught me that there was an entire continuum of nontraditional image making, and that fundamentally changed the course of my work.
I'm honored tonight to be speaking at @halfkingphoto, Tim's home away from home.
Wish he could join us. RIP.

Morning on my balcony in Monrovia, Liberia. Reading and looking through Tim Hetherington's "Long Story Bit by Bit." Such deep and important work that I am happy to be learning from yet again. Last week, I meet a former female combatant who remembered Tim and spoke of him with kindness and respect. I wonder what he'd think of Liberia today. As I look through his book, I'm reminded of all the things that development dollars and half-hearted reconciliation attempts haven't managed to change.
