Tim Hetherington was a British-American photojournalist with work that "ranged from multi-screen installations, to fly-poster exhibitions, to handheld device downloads." He was best known for the documentary film Restrepo, which he co-directed with Sebastian Junger; the film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2011. Hetherington was killed by shrapnel from either a mortar shell or an RPG fired by Libyan forces while covering the 2011 Libyan civil war.
