Guests: James Brabazon, Max Houghton, Stephen
Foam and De Balie present a special evening devoted to the
British-American photographer Tim Hetherington (1970-2011, UK).
This event will include the Dutch première of Sebastian Junger's
recently released documentary Which Way is the Frontline from
Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington.
It has been organised to mark the very first exhibition of Tim
Hetherington's work in the Netherlands. Tim Hetherington looked for
alternative ways to photograph conflicts and to reveal human
experiences of war. In 2011, he was tragically killed when working
in Libya. The evening will examine what photographers can do to ask
different questions, side-track the spectacle of conflict
photography and engage the genuine interest of your public.
Max Houghton is Senior Lecturer in Photography at
the University of Westminster. She will present a brief history of
the various approaches to conflict photography and how
Hetherington's work fits into it.
James Brabazon is a documentary-maker, journalist
and photographer. He worked with Tim Hetherington in Liberia
between 2003-2007. He will talk about that period as well as Tim
Hetherington's approach and personality.
Stephen Mayes is the director of The Estate of
Tim Hetherington, NY. He will address issues of masculinity,
aggression and war in relation to Hetherington's work. This will be
followed by a discussion and an opportunity to ask questions.
