The dispatches they sent back – in stills, words and film footage – were seen by millions both in the magazine and on the ABC nightly news in America. Hetherington’s image of a soldier in the forward operating base of “Restrepo” won him the 2008 World Press Photo of the Year and a short video installation Sleeping Soldiers was first shown to wide acclaim by Foto8 at the NY Photo festival 2009. Restrepo, a feature length documentary about the soldiers who were stationed at this isolated and continually attacked outpost, received its screen premiere at the Sundance film festival in Park City, Utah in January 2010 where it was awarded the top honour for Best US Documentary Film.” Text from Foto8

Exhibitions Moving Walls 16 (Open Society Institute)” The Moving Walls exhibition reflects issues of importance to the Open Society Institute around the world but is not organized around a single theme. The 16th exhibition of Moving Walls is dominated, however, by themes of war, conflict, and their aftermath. Half of the exhibition addresses the United States military engagement in Afghanistan and Iraq, focusing on the perspective of the soldiers and civilians whose lives are directly affected by these wars. Zalmaï returns to his home country, Afghanistan, to find that the promise of democracy has not been fulfilled. Whatever hope Afghans had for their country in 2002 is being destroyed as innocent Afghan civilians get caught in the crossfire of yet another bloody battle being fought on their land. Zalmaï turns his lens on the personal to remind viewers of the human cost of war.” Photographers: Ben Lowy, Eugene Richards, Tomas van Houtryve, Stefano di Luigi, Paolo Woods, Zalmaï.

Videos – Robbie Cooper: Watching People Watch Porn (18 minutes) (1854 blog: November 2009) “Last year, photographer Robbie Cooper made waves by filming and photographing kids playing video games, catching moments of joy, exhilaration and despair. Now, he’s capturing similar sentiments from men and women watching porn. The project, commissioned by Wallpaper*, ‘throws up any number of questions about voyeurism and exhibitionism and makes clear the incredible nakedness of the solo sex act,’ says the magazine.”
