Quotes

James Nachtwey: For me, the strength of photography lies in its ability to evoke humanity. If war is an attempt to negate humanity, then photography can be perceived as the opposite of war.

Outstanding insight on journalism, mass media, and Western Society
14 December 2003 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

This film manages to show us an extraordinary slice of life, and make a significant comment on western society at the same time. The directer

remains distant-letting Nachtway and others make the point. Ingenious use of multiple cameras as well as Nachtway's "still" black and white photos make this compelling to watch as well.

Regardless of location or assignment this should be a primer for all working journalists as well as all journalism students.
