Video of the Day: Diary by Tim Hetherington

Numerous reflections on the life of Tim Hetherington has been written. I cannot say I know anything about the life of Mr. Hetherington, but loss of any life should be mourned. However, the above video, shared by Glenna Gordon, strikes me as one of the best juxtapositions between the dual realities faced by an individual who has spent time between regions of conflict & poverty and the Western world. I think that anyone who has spent significant time living and working in low-income communities will find this short film to resonate.

On the film:

'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.
