"The other thing we’ve lost with their deaths is inspiration. Lots of young people went out to Libya to take photographs. Pretty much anyone with a plane ticket and an iPhone seemed to be going out there. But people like Tim and Chris provided strong role models for what to do with the material once we’re there. It wasn’t enough to have the access. There needed to be a plan for what to do with it. And I think what the industry loses, and what the younger generation coming up loses, is a guiding star. You could really set a course by what Tim and Chris were doing. They worked very differently from one another, but their direction was usually true. So we’ve lost understanding and we’ve lost translation, but we’ve also lost direction."
