Sebastian Junger talks about directing the documentary “Which Way is the Front Line from Here: The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington,” a portrait of the war photographer who in April 2011 was killed by mortar fire in Misrata, Libya, where he’d been covering the civil war. Junger is joined by James Brabazon, a war photographer who is featured in the documentary, and who was a friend of Hetherington. The film debuts April 18 on HBO, in conjunction with “Sleeping Soliders,” an outdoor exhibition of  Hetherington’s work at The International Center of Photography.

While I can fully appreciate the power of EXCELLENT conflict photography (much of which, is not), the word "war whore" and "adrenaline junkie" keep coming into my head.

I wonder about motivations.
