Tim Hetherington Photobook Library

Tim Hetherington Photobook Library

The Bronx Documentary Center’s Tim Hetherington Photobook Library is one of New York City’s only libraries dedicated to photography. 

The library is stocked with the books of the late Tim Hetherington, an Oscar nominee and World Press Photo award winner, who helped plan the BDC before his tragic death in Libya in 2011. The library was constructed over the span of a year by the BDC’s cadre of volunteers.

The library is open on Saturdays from 1pm to 5pm and by appointment only outside those hours. Please email info@bronxdoc.org for scheduling. You can also search the library's online catalogue.

 

The BDC gratefully acknowledges the support of Tim’s parents, Judith and Alistair Hetherington, who generously donated his books to the BDC. We’d also like to thank Aperture Foundation, PDN, Radius Books, Mack, Eugene Richards, Kathy Ryan, Scott Thode, Peter van Agtmael, Jamie Wellford, Jim Estrin, Twin Palms, Paul Kessel, and the many others who have donated books. Construction of the BDC's Tim Hetherington Library was generously funded by a grant from Phillip and Edith Leonian Foundation.
