Very sad news – photojournalists Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros were killed while covering the conflict, between Libyan rebels and armed forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, in Misrata on April 20th. Photojournalists Guy Martin and Michael Christopher Brown were injured during the attack. My thoughts go out to their families and friends.
‘Diary’ is a highly personal and experimental film that expresses the subjective experience of my work, and was made as an attempt to locate myself after ten years of reporting. It’s a kaleidoscope of images that link our western reality to the seemingly distant worlds we see in the media. – Tim Hetherington (1970 – 2011)
Bizarre, strange and fascinating: 12:31 – A photographic series by Croix Gagnon & Frank Schott. Images created with data from the Visible Human Project. www.project1231.com “Joseph Paul Jernigan (January 31, 1954 – August 5, 1993) was a Texas murderer who was executed by lethal injection at 12:31 a.m. In 1981, Jernigan was sentenced to death for stabbing and shooting 75-year-old Edward Hale, who discovered him stealing a microwave oven. Jernigan spent 12 years in prison before his final plea for clemency was denied. His cadaver was sectioned and photographed for the Visible Human Project at the University of Colorado’s Health Sciences Center”.
But, this visual language is dying. The traditional outlets are collapsing. In the midst of this upheaval, we must invent a new language. Condition ONE combines the power of the still image and storytelling, the emotional engagement of tactile experiences, and the compelling nature of being an active participant in an effort to pioneer a new language that is so immersive, that it will shake viewers out of their numbness to traditional media and provide them a powerful emotional experience. Instead of opening a window to glimpse another world, we are attempting to bring the viewer into that world.
