Sierra Leone, Freetown, 2001

Often described as a conflict photographer, Tim Hetherington’s mission was more complicated. “Trying to understand my own fascination with conflict and war has become something that’s started to focus on what it means to be a man. Hetherington produced a celebrated body of photographic and video works during his career before his death aged 40 in Libya.

As part of the Magnum at 70, Series 1 Collection, Sedition presents a digital edition of a photograph taken by Hetherington in Liberia in 2001. The image was captured at the Mitlon Margai School for the Blind in Freetown and is a portrait of one of the pupils there.

The work is included as part of the Magnum at 70 partnership between Magnum Photos and Sedition in celebration of 70 years of the world renowned photography collective. Collections of iconic photographic and video works by artists represented by Magnum Photos will be released as digital editions on Sedition as part of an international programme throughout 2017.
