British photographer's work honoured a year after tragic death
Images captured by British photojournalist Tim Hetherington go on show in New York from tonight, almost a year since he was tragically killed while on assignment in Libya.
Tim, who lived in New York, died alongside US photographer Chris Hondros, after a group of journalists came under attack in Misrata on 20 April 2011.
The New York show mainly features Hetherington’s images from conflicts in West Africa and the Middle East.
‘His images posthumously became part of the Magnum Photos archive,’ said a spokesman for the Yossi Milo Gallery where Tim's photos will exhibited until 19 May.
‘After his untimely death, the largest town square in Ajdabiya, Libya, was renamed Tim Hetherington Square by anti-Qaddafi rebels.’
The Washington Post has published images from the show – described as the first posthumous solo exhibition of Tim’s work – on its website.
