Nearly two years ago, Tim Hetherington was killed by mortar shells in Libya while he was photographing the civil war there. Hetherington, who is known for his work in West Africa and with U.S. Army soldiers in Korengal Valley, in Afghanistan, worked in both still and moving images, and, as Whitney Johnson wrote in her 2010 post, explored “the boundaries… between photojournalism and conceptual work.”

This week, Yossi Milo Gallery presents “Inner Light: Portraits of the Blind,” an exhibition of the black-and-white photographs Hetherington took between 1999 and 2003 at the Milton Margai School for the Blind in Freetown, Sierra Leone, where he was fondly known as Uncle Tim. About the conflict in Sierra Leone, Hetherington said, “As a result of the civil war, many people were left with serious medical conditions. As well as the more common abuses of amputation, the fighters of the Revolutionary Front (R.U.F.) also terrorized people blind by cutting their eyes out. Others lost their eyes to shrapnel or as a result of being caught up in combat. Many simply lost their eyesight because they did not have access to a doctor and therefore a simple medical condition developed went untreated.”

The Yossi Milo show opens on April 11th, and the HBO documentary “Which Way Is The Front Line From Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington,” directed by Hetherington’s friend and filmmaking partner Sebastian Junger, premières on April 10th.

I always feel torn about beautiful photos of disaster, but it’s hard not to re-post this.

tried to find the source of this photo, but it I couldn’t get to it through tumblr. really like the peacefulness of it though. Don’t know if this will work for everyone, but when you click on the photo, it changes in tone.

These are two images from one of my former NYCSalt students, Chris. He is blazing new trails for himself through his studies at SCAD. I am SO unbelievably proud of him.

This weeks update: 

I can taste home, I can taste the dirty beer ridden and rat invested streets of New York City and by golly am I ready for it. As I try to keep it, non-stop burning film, scanning, printing, and improving. 

I had a critique in my color class and aside from being late it went quite well. The images above are two that I wasn’t able to show because they weren’t developed on time. I scanned them today and did some small cleaning up here and there, nothing to heavy. 

Hope all is well with all of you folks and I hope you enjoy the imagery. 

PS. Believe it or not I’m working on a self portrait series, I have two of them shot and plan to do about twelve. I’ll upload the two I’ve got sometime next week. Also the images above were shot on Ektar 100 and a Hasselblad 501CM

What is it about artists who draw on “paper” that seems like it shouldn’t or cannot be drawn on? I absolutely love this work.

The work of Ed Fairburn

An illustration graduate, Ed paints, draws and constructs using a flexible range of tangible media across a wide range of surfaces and contexts, allowing his practice to exist across various disciplines. The work he produces is largely self-directed, allowing him to explore a wealth of ideas and concepts which need to be realized.

Came across the stunning work of Iain Sarjeant (http://www.iainsarjeant.com/) this morning, thanks to another new blog called Duck Rabbit that I discovered as a source for interesting multimedia projects (http://duckrabbit.info/blog/2012/09/among-trees/)
Check out both links for some serious inspiration!
