Two years after British-American photojournalist Tim Hetherington's death while documenting the Libyan war, this lecture will explore alternative representations of conflict. Hetherington sought to shift the emphasis from the military hardware to the "software" of conflict, making war a personal matter. The discussion will explore the legacy of Hetherington's work with contributions from colleagues Stephen Mayes, Director of VII Photo in New York, Michael Kamber, conflict photographer, author and co-founder of the Bronx Documentary Center as well as award-winning writer/director Topaz Adizes who had collaborated with Hetherington on a film before his death.
Online registration for this event opens Wednesday, April 17 at 12pm PST and Thursday, April 18 at 9:30am PST
