Two years after he was killed whilst covering the Libyan Civil War, Liverpool’s Open Eye Gallery pays tribute to documentary photographer Tim Hetherington with an exhibition of both his photographs and film work. The images Tim produced as a photo-reporter resituated the boundaries of war photography by depicting soldiers and the reality they lived, from the hours of tense waiting and boredom to the brotherly relationships built over the period of a year in camp.
The exhibition will show work from several collections, from Infidel, a series of images taken in Korengal Valley in Afghanistan, to Sleeping Soldiers, a video installation portraying soldiers in the rare moments of vulnerability and fragility while they sleep, forming a comprehensive and breathtaking perspective of the career of an startlingly brave and dedicated man.
Tim Hetherington: You Never See Them Like This runs until November 24 at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool.
