Shelves: art-and-photography The heaviest book on earth. Oh my fuck what this guy has seen. And what a photographer! Remember that scene from Pirates of the Caribbean? What would you do? Screw him, and his managers and PR guys and minders.
No, my friends. Keith Richards knows jack-shit about the dark side compared to James Nachtwey. He is probablly the best photojournalist ever and his photos are an honest and personal account to the horrors of war, poverty, and famine.
I am amazed that when faced with such horrendous situations he can manage to compose a beautiful and rich photograph but This is a book of photographs taken by James Nachtwey, famous Anti War photographer. I am amazed that when faced with such horrendous situations he can manage to compose a beautiful and rich photograph but his belief in the human spirit and the idea that his work will reach others to inspire them to take action to stop such terrible atrocities from occuring help him to continue to put himself in harms way.
The pictures in this book are graphic and gruesome.
In , he moved to New York and began working as a freelance photographer. In , he covered his first assignment in Northern Ireland illustrating civil strife. He has documented a variety of armed conflicts and social issues, spending time in South Africa , Latin America , the Middle East , Russia , Eastern Europe , the former Soviet Union shooting pictures of war, conflict and images of socio-political issues in Western Europe and the United States. He is not married and currently lives in New York City. In , Nachtwey was covering the upcoming elections in South Africa, the first non-racial ones in decades. Nachtwey had been injured previously in his work, but it was during his extensive coverage of the United States invasion of Iraq that he received his first combat injury. Weisskopf grabbed the grenade to throw it out of the humvee: two soldiers were injured in the explosion, along with the Time journalists.
