Tim, a master of many mediums—audio, film, video, photography—was not interested in being labeled. He was neither a filmmaker nor a photographer. He was, as he often said, working at “transjournalism”—a term he used to describe his multidisciplinary approach.
One of the best pieces I’ve read about transjournalist and Restrepo director Tim Hetherington. With transmedia taking off, it’s no surprise that there’d be transjournalists, I had just never thought about it.
