Tim Hetherington was a British-American photojournalist with work that "ranged from multi-screen installations, to fly-poster exhibitions, to handheld device downloads." He was best known for the documentary film Restrepo (2010), which he co-directed with Sebastian Junger; the film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2011. Hetherington was killed by mortar shells fired by Libyan forces while covering the 2011 Libyan civil war.
