Peter Penfold, CMG, OBE
Retired diplomat, former British High Commissioner to Sierra Leone
Before his retirement in January 2002 Peter Penfold was a member of the British Diplomatic Service for 38 years, most of which time was spent serving in, or in contact with, Africa and the Caribbean (especially Commonwealth countries). covering all aspects of diplomatic life. He was responsible for advising and implementing policy on relations with Africa and the Caribbean, including conflict prevention/resolution the administration of Britain’s overseas territories, and combating the drugs problem. He served in various “hotspots” around the world, witnessing several coups, insurrections, civil wars, kidnappings and hurricanes, and oversaw several successful evacuations of the British and international communities. He was awarded the CMG (1995) and OBE (1986).
On 20 April 2011, photographer and filmmaker Tim Hetherington was killed by mortar fire in the city of Misrata, Libya.
In his work Hetherington focused on the experience of war from the perspective of the individual. Through his photographs, writing and films, he offered new ways to think about human suffering as a result of war. He captured the perspective of the soldiers and the civilians, caught up in the many conflicts he reported. The work he did throughout his ten-year career has established him as one of the most important photojournalists of his generation.
Colleague and co-director of the Academy Award-nominated documentary Restrepo, Sebastian Junger thoughtfully portrays Hetherington’s life and work. At a time when greater numbers of journalists are losing their lives covering conflict, the film also addresses the high risks taken by war journalists.
