Very tragic to learn that British Photographer Tim Hetherington was killed ….
Well, war is — it is a very slippery thing to try and get out any truisms about war,” Hetherington said. “I mean, Tim O”Brien, the writer, you know, said the same thing. You know, war is hell, but it”s more than that. And rather than kind of lay down any kind of definitiveness, I just wanted to — to show the texture of it. And that meant not just photographing just the combat, but, as you say, the guys, their time off, when war is often very boring. And it”s boredom punctuated by sheer terror. And I wanted to capture all of that.
