Tim Hetherington's Photographic Installation, SLEEPING SOLDIERS at the School of the International Center of Photography

Sleeping Soldiers is a new photographic installation at the School of  the International Center of Photography (ICP) from April 4–May 13, 2013. The photographs were taken by Tim Hetherington (1970–2011), an ICP faculty member and guest artist. He photographed the experience of war from the perspective of the individual, mostly in West Africa and the Middle East. On April 20, 2011, Hetherington was killed by Libyan forces in a mortar attack.

The International Center of Photography school is located at 1114 6th Avenue (or Avenue of the Americas) and 43rd Street in midtown Manhattan, diagonally across the street from the ICP Museum. Pictured above is one of the building's architectural highlights, a striking glass pavilion entrance on the building's plaza. Below ground is a 27,000-square-foot facility featuring state-of-the-art classroom and black-and-white and color lab spaces, digital labs with resources for multimedia, digital photography, video editing and production, and a professional shooting studio.
