Tim Hetherington, award winning photographer and documentary filmmaker is the coproducer and co-director of ‘Restrepo’ with Sebastian Junger, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. His latest publishing project is “Infidel”, an intimate portrait of a single U.S. platoon stationed in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan. The images we made over the course of one year while Hetherington and Junger were filming ‘Restrepo’.

Hetherington has reported on conflict and social issues for more than ten years. He was the only photographer to live behind rebel lines during the 2003 Liberian civil war - work that culminated in the film 'Liberia: an Uncivil War' and the book “Long Story Bit by Bit : Liberia Retold” (Umbrage 2009).

He is the recipient of four World Press Photo awards, including the World Press Photo of the Year (2007), and an Alfred I. duPont Award in broadcast journalism while on assignment with Sebastian Junger for ABC News (2009). A native of the U.K., he is lives in New York and is a contributing photographer for Vanity Fair.
