    Tim Hetherington, Diary, 2010.

    The year since the tragic death of Tim Hetherington has been a mix of mourning and celebration, for the loss of a young artist with incredible potential, yet one who made a great deal of powerful work within his lifetime. Though the exhibition of his work at Yossi Milo Gallery ended a month ago, one of the most remarkable works from the show is continually available online.

    Diary is Hetherington’s stream of consciousness—a nonlinear sequence blurring the boundaries between foreign battlegrounds and the bucolic pastures of home. Yet the terms of war and peace are superseded by the internal struggle for meaning in the face of alienation—a battle fought both in times of conflict and comfort. Altogether this composition of cross-fading associations dramatically presents the way Hetherington sensed space, movement, and emotion.

    His description of the work, as quoted from the Vimeo host page:

    ‘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.
