Tim Hetherington archive available to view and license at IWM

The IWM (Imperial War Museums) is pleased to announce that images from the award-winning conflict photographer Tim Hetherington (1970-2011) are now available to view and license on IWM Collections.

The extensive archive comprises Hetherington’s seminal work from his embeds in Afghanistan (2007-2008), Liberia (2003-2006) and Libya (2011), reflecting his work as an intrepid conflict journalist but also as a humanitarian and an innovator.  

• Highlights of the collection include: the World Press Photo of the Year 2008 winning image of a U.S soldier in Afghanistan; a video and photography installation called ‘Sleeping Soldiers’ taken at Restrepo, which capture the soldiers at their most vulnerable and contrasts with popular perceptions of conflict; and an acclaimed series of photographs from the ‘Healing Sport’ project which documents the nature of sport in war torn countries such as Angola and Liberia.
