Tim Hetherington

US 120mm Mortar Company: photo © Tim Hetherington/Panos Pictures (2007)BBC News has published an interview with British photographer Tim Hetherington, who won the World Press Photo Premier Award with his photo of an exhausted US soldier in Afghanistan, taken while on assignment for Vanity Fair. It beat more than 80,000 other entries. There's an online gallery of 11 of his dramatic photos from this assignment (title link). For a gallery of all the winners CLICK. The BBC News item coincides with yesterday's opening of the World Press Photo exhibition tour 2008 in the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Harare. The exhibition will travel all over the world, but not to the UK! Why not?
