It’s a moving tribute to the late war photographer Tim Hetherington to see his images exhibited at a contemporary art festival. This initiative was led by the celebrated New York gallery Yossi Milo, who presents Hetherington’s portraits along with work by the South African photographer Pieter Hugo, whose reports on African communities are just as grave as the Hetherington’s images of Afghanistan. Work by Matthew Brandt helps to lighten the mood, as does a pensive lemur photographed by Simen Johan. The walls reserved for the Yossi Milo Gallery are not to be missed.
