Here I Am: The Story of Tim Hetherington, War Photographer

by Alan Huffman - £9.99  Grove Press / Atlantic Monthly Press (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781611855685 | ISBN 10: 1611855683

"I don’t think I fully understood how brave my good friend Tim Hetherington was until reading these pages. Not only does Huffman bring Tim back to life — his brilliant work, his extraordinary vision — but he also leads us through some of the most harrowing combat of our generation. His description of the siege of Misrata should be read by anyone who imagines they understand war — or courage, or fear."
(Sebastian Junger)
Tim Hetherington (1970–2011) was one of the world’s most distinguished and dedicated photojournalists. In Here I Am, journalist Alan Huffman recounts Hetherington’s life: his first interests in photography; his critical role in reporting the Liberian Civil War; and his tragic death in Libya. Huffman also traces Hetherington’s photographic milestones, from his 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.
