On View at Aperture: Tim Hetherington’s “Sleeping Soldiers” and “Diary”

Tim Hetherington: Sleeping Soldiers and Diary
Exhibition on view at Aperture Gallery May 25 to June 23, 2011
Admission: Free

“In remembrance of Tim Hetherington, photographer, reporter, and filmmaker, Aperture is honored to present his Sleeping Soldiers video installation and his Diary video.

Tim Hetherington was killed in Misurata, Libya, on April 20, 2011, during an attack by pro-Qaddafi forces on the rebel-held town. His funeral took place in London on May 13.

Sleeping Soldiers (5 minutes, 2009) is an immersive video essay (shot at the same time as Hetherington’s Oscar-nominated film Restrepo) featuring soldiers of a U.S. Airborne Infantry platoon based in the Korengal Valley of Eastern Afghanistan, in combat and at rest. The original three-screen installation was first shown in New York in 2009 at the New York Photo Festival, in an exhibition curated by Jon Levy.

Diary (19 minutes, 2010) is a highly personal and experimental film that expresses the subjective experience of Hetherington’s working life, and was made as an attempt to find himself 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.”  more»
