Publisher's Summary

Tim Hetherington (1970-2011) was one of the world’s most distinguished and dedicated photojournalists, whose career was tragically cut short when he died in a mortar blast while covering the Libyan Civil War. Tim won many awards for his war reporting, and was nominated for an Academy Award for the critically acclaimed documentary Restrepo. Hetherington’s dedication to his career led him time after time into war zones, and unlike some other journalists, he did not pack up after the story had broken.

In Here I Am, journalist and freelance writer Alan Huffman tells Hetherington’s life story, and through it analyzes what it means to be a war reporter in the 21st century. Huffman recounts Hetherington’s life from his first interests in photography, through his critical role in reporting the Liberian Civil War, to his tragic death in Libya. Huffman also traces Hetherington’s photographic milestones, from his iconic and prize-winning photographs of Liberian children, to the celebrated portraits of sleeping U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. Here I Am explores the risks, challenges, and thrills of war reporting, and is a testament to the unique work of people like Hetherington, who risk their lives to give a voice to people ravaged by war.

    "Had high hopes"

    A book that keeps you at arms length. Unfortunately alternates between stiff prose and high drama this book never succeeds in bringing you into to the life of it's great and worthy subject. The narrator is diligent but also stiff in his delivery and pauses before unfamiliar names which jolts the listener to attention repeatedly. A tragic loss to the creative and journalistic world but sadly not a highly successful testimonial to his life. Clearly the author is passionate and means well but the flaws in the execution are difficult to overcome.

    "2nd time around"

    If you're a photojournalist like me, you'll enjoy this book. Tim Hetherington is one of my idols, I'm a Military Photographer and his life hits home with me. This is my second time around on this book, the first was with the hard copy. After completing it for a second time, I find myself even more moved than my initial experience.
