Remembering Tim Hetherington

One of the great things about being the official photographer of the USA Film Festival is the amazing people I get to meet and photograph, and the films I get to experience.
Tim Hetherington will always be one of my favorites, and I was saddened to hear that he was killed today in Libya doing what he loved doing - taking pictures. He made me really understand the sacrifices that our armed forces make every day for us, and the visions that he shared with us of what life is like for our soldiers will always be with me.
I love these photos of him laughing, and he seemed to have a great sense of humor. If you haven't seen Restrepo, please do now and think about this courageous man who gave his life as the soldiers around him have to protect us.
