Tyler Hicks: photos from Timbuktu

By Christopher B. Daly

The intrepid Tyler Hicks, conflict photographer for The New York Times, has made it to Timbuktu, recording the campaign to oust the Islamic militants who briefly held the remote city and the aftermath of the city’s liberation. Hicks (a graduate of the program where I teach at Boston University) has been to all the major hot spots in recent years and has survived a number of threats, including kidnapping. We should all treasure his work:

  1. You really make it seem really easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I feel I would never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m taking a look ahead for your next publish, I will try to get the grasp of it!
