Talk Tuesday 27th March, 2007

Tim Hetherington will show work from his recent trip to Liberia and discuss the fault lines of west Africa with colleague James Brabazon.Tim Hetherington has covered Africa for the last eight years. He was one of the only photographers to work behind rebel lines during the recent Liberian civil war, was involved in freeing the first hostage taken in the recent waves of kidnappings in the Niger Delta, and broke the story of the Sudanese Janjaweed massacres in Chad.
