Tim Hetherington mostly took photos that tell deep and dark stories behind the photos. Tim try's to communicate the the things that happens in Wars and the true reality of them. Time shot photos in war zones, so mostly Rocky Mountains, plains and deserts. Tim's photos pack a great influence after the coverage of many soldiers and war zones, and distraught families affected by the war.

I like the coverage Tim has provided about the wars and the pictures pack a heavy story that can touch the hearts of others.

Tim used many cameras including Canon DSLR, Nikon DSLR and a Leica
