James Nachtwey Photographies[edit]

Although James Nachtwey has spent most of his career photographing war, he considers himself an anti-war photographer. Living in the midst of wars and natural disasters has taken its toll on Nachtwey. Nevertheless, he continues working because of his strong belief that his photographs can make a difference. Nachtwey, convinced of the effect his pictures have on viewers, has never stopped hoping to fight the horrors of war, hunger and poverty through his work. Inferno is the only major monograph of humanitarian and photojournalist James Nachtwey, five-time winner of the Robert Capa Medal for Photography which features brutal photographs taken from 1990-99 and is inspired by a passionate belief that human beings will change for the better after seeing such inhumanity.
