Documentarian Tim Hetherington Lived His Dream Every Day

Documentarian and Oscar-nominated co-director of the film Restrepo Tim Hetherington died today in the city of Misrata. He was doing what he was born to do…documenting our world. This time, covering the conflict between Muammar Gaddafi’s forces and Libyan rebels.

An Inspiring Life

It will not be how Tim died, but how he lived, that is remembered.

Tim Lived His Dream

Tim Hetherington lived his life to the fullest, touching many along the way as he pursued his dream: documenting some of the most dangerous, difficult realities on planet earth.

For that dream Tim Hetherington put himself in harm’s way in the name of something he probably thought was bigger than him.


In his much-too-short 40 years of life, he likely lived more than many of us ever will.

He’s gone much too soon, but he left us while doing what he loved. Chasing the truth, and living his dream.

His is a life to celebrate.
