George Georgiou : Photographer (IdeasTap: September 2011)

“I invest myself emotionally in the people I photograph – not just to gain their trust but also to make myself feel comfortable. I’m not a quick, brash photographer – I was encouraged at Newport to understand compassion and humility and understanding, and that’s something I’ve tried to adhere to. “- Ivor Prickett

Ivor Prickett : Photojournalist (IdeasTap: September 2011)

“Realistically, unless you’re an individual like Ryan McGinley, it’s going to take 10 years to establish yourself: five years to pay the rent and five years to hone your practice. But the beauty about photography is, if you make it work for you, you never have to retire” – David Birkett

Editor’s note: This post has been updated most recently on 1 May 2011. All the link additions can be found at the bottom of the post.

The world lost Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros in Libya yesterday, two not only great photojournalists, but based on tributes I have read,  two wonderful human beings. Both men were in their very early forties. Two other photographers, Guy Martin and Michael Christopher Brown were also injured by the blast that killed Hetherington and Hondros. Wednesday 20 April 2011 will remain as one of the darkest days in the history of photojournalism, along with 10 February 1971, the day when Larry Burrows, Henry Huet, Kent Potter, and Keisaburo Shimamoto were downed in Laos. I had never met either Tim Hetherington or Chris Hondros, but I had huge amount of respect and admiration for their work, not only the courage and willingness to put themselves in harm’s way  for their stories but especially for the compelling photographs they produced under the difficult and dangerous circumstances forever present in conflict situations. As soon as the terrible news were announced  during yesterday afternoon and evening,  countless tributes and memorials began flooding online on both sides of the Atlantic from both men’s friends and colleagues. I would like to show my own appreciation towards Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros by compiling here some of those mentioned tributes, as well links to some interviews and work of both the photojournalists. I would like to dedicate this post  to the memory of the two men and to their friends and family. My thoughts are with them at this very sad time. I can only imagine the pain felt by those who knew Tim and Chris personally.  I hope friends and family can find some solace in the fact that neither of them lived their lives in vain. Not only did both Hetherington and Hondros spend most of  their careers highlighting important issues  that would have otherwise been ignored or overlooked by the general public in countries such the UK and US, but they also practiced their craft at the very top tier of our industry to a very high standard and they were setting a mark towards which the rest of us should always strive for. Tim and Chris will be greatly missed.

Tim Hetherington 1970-2011

“My pictures were being used to illustrate others’ ideas, so I started making stories to express my own ideas about the world”  - Tim Hetherington

“My work is about trying to get us to understand that we are connected and trying to build bridges and understanding between people.”  - Tim Hetherington on Twitter August 27, 2010

““The news that Chris Hondros was killed in Misurata is a gut punch to so many people, for so many reasons, both because he was so young, so talented, and perhaps most of all because he was so fearless. It is impossible to imagine him doing anything but the work he loved doing. The world is a more enlightened and more aware place today because Chris Hondros felt such a profound responsibility to brave war zones in order to share the truth in poignant images with the rest of the world.” – John Kerry

Hetherington, Tim (BBC: October 2010)

Hetherington, Tim (Guernica: September 2010)

Hetherington, Tim talks about his documentary Restrepo (NPR: June 2010)

“If you are interested in mass communication, then you have to stop thinking of yourself as a photographer. We live in a post-photographic world. If you are interested in photography, then you are interested in something — in terms of mass communication — that is past. I am interested in reaching as many people as possible.” – Tim Hetherington

Hetherington, Tim (NYT Lens: June 2010)

Hetherington Tim (video) (VF: December 2007) Pushing back the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan’s strategically crucial Korengal Valley is one of the U.S. Army’s deadliest challenges. For “Into the Valley of Death” (January 2008), Sebastian Junger dug in with the men of Second Platoon, whose humor, courage, and camaraderie come under daily fire. In this video, which features battlefront footage shot by Junger and photographer Tim Hetherington for ABC News, Junger and Hetherington talk about their experiences in Afghanistan while working on the story.

Hetherington, Tim at NYPH (video c. 45 minutes) (What’s the Jackanory: May 2009)

Their work…

The photojournalism community is in shock today, but we can take some comfort in knowing that both men died doing what they most loved. We can celebrate and applaud their lives’ work and achievements.
