I loved this documentary from Sebastian Junger on HBO “Which Way Is the Front Line From Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington” which explored the question of what drove Tim Hetherington a photojournalist to document war zones in Africa, Afghanistan and finally Libya, where he was killed by a mortar round in 2011 at age 40. It shows how much he was drawn to connect with the people he was documenting and how he couldn't stop returning to war torn countries to tell their stories. A slideshow of some of his haunting photos here.
Also a great read from Anya Yurchyshyn......
You think you know your mother and father, who they are, and what they mean. Then they're gone and the photos and letters they leave behind tell an entirely different story.
