Tom Hurndall: a remarkable man’s photographs of the Middle East

“When a man must lie to himself to do what he knows he should, that is when you know he is terrified.”

It’s impossible to read this without feeling humbled. We lead our lives, occasionally doing ‘good deeds’ and more often than not feeling pretty smug about it. Sometimes we’re pretty loud about it. We sit at our computers and tap at our phones, sending certain, entitled opinions into the world and valuing our ego over actually achieving anything. Here was a young man who really did it, putting himself in mortal danger for the causes he believed in and doing it with eloquence and a welcoming self-awareness. RIP Tom Hurndall.
