Verve Photo: The New Breed of Documentary Photographers

“Verve: endurance, fire, force, gumption, gusto, intensity, moxie, passion, spunk, stamina, strength, toughness, vigor”.

“Photographer and photo editor Geoffrey Hiller has created Verve Photo to feature photographs and interviews by the finest contemporary image makers today. Verve Photo is a reminder of the power of the still image. Verve Photo will also point you to new photo agencies, publications, and inspiring multimedia projects”.

Tim Hetherington (1970 -2011) and Chris Hondros (1970 -2011)

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 (2010) from Tim Hetherington on Vimeo.

‘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)
