You Never See Them Like This - posthumous Tim Hetherington Exhibition

19 September 2013
Two years after his death in the Libyan civil war, the work of Liverpool born photojournalist and ‘Image maker’ Tim Hetherington is presented at the Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool, featuring a three-channel video installation entitled 'Sleeping Soldiers' alongside almost thirty photographic images.

The show, presented in collaboration with the Tim Hetherington Trust and Magnum Photos, draws images from Hetherington’s book entitled ‘Infidel’ which was published in 2012 and offers an intimate insight into the lives of American soldiers in conflict yet outside the action of war.  

Metro is delighted to have produced the C Type prints for this exhibition, which show both the intimacy and absurdity of war. The exhibition focuses on the long-term nature of Hetherington’s photographic projects, his interest in narrative, human connection and the close relationships he developed with his subjects. Images range from surprisingly tender moments of soldiers asleep to officers practising their golf swing on the front line.

The exhibition’s title, You Never See Them Like This, is a quote by Hetherington talking to his creative collaborator Sebastian Junger (a journalist and his co-director on the Oscar-winning documentary film, Restrepo), describing the revelation he had looking at the sleeping soldiers: “They always look so tough… but when they’re asleep they look like little boys. They look the way their mothers probably remember them.”
