This review is from: Here I Am: The Story of Tim Hetherington, War Photographer (Hardcover)
"A lie is not another side of the story its just a lie"
Knew Tim for over 13 years, shared studio, worked with him all that time, was the sole editor and exhibitor of his major works, Liberia 2007, Infidel 2009 at Foto8 gallery, produced and exhibited Sleeping Soldiers and admired Tim's professionalism and ethic these guys (Junger and Brabazon included) now seem to lay special claim to. Did this writer bother to call, ask anything about Tim before he wrote a biography of his supposed professional life? No, he just followed the crass HBO documentary that effectively celebrates Tim's death rather than piece together the thinking, the work and the characters that Tim unified through his grace and talent whilst with us.
Jumping on the bandwagon to support a poor quality documentary that provides a platform for the film directors and this "author" is bad enough, its intolerable when you happen to know the real story. I gave it one star because with a hard back and paper inside it is a book after all but that's all it is.
