Tim Hetherington BY Corey Sanchez

He was born in Great Britain in 1970. He graduated from Oxford in 1992 with a degree in Classics and English. He later went back to school at Cardiff University and graduated in 1997 with a degree in photojournalism. In 2011 while in documenting in Libya he was killed by a mortar. He was a war photographer who wanted to build a bridge between himself and the audience. He's been all over the world like Libya and Afghanistan. He was a legend because he went where ever the soldiers went. He made a movie of the people he meet and things he saw.

I really like his pictures because they all tell a separate story but tell one big story at the same time. Also it gives me a sense of what is going on in countries that are in war. I would like to tell a story just as good as he was.

He does a good job of leading lines and does a good job using the light to his advantage and have it shining directly on the subject. This caught my eye because to me it looks he is going to kill people for these reason. It is a very emotional and meaningful picture because he's trying to keep the people he loves free from another attack. I like this picture because it is a very deep photo with a lot of meaning.
