On War

Newsweek magazine recently published Tim Hetherington’s last photos from Libya with a very fine short text by James Welford. He quotes correspondence between Tim and Stephen Mayes: “Photography is great at representing the hardware of the war machine,”  [Hetherington] told his good friend and writer Stephen Mayes, a month before he died. “But the truth is that the war machine is the software, as much as the hardware. The software runs it, and the software is young men. I’m not so young anymore. But I get it. That’s really what my work is about.”
