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.

User Reviews

 
Excellent film about Nachtway and photographic journalism in general.
2 January 2017 | by jungerhansonSee all my reviews

Excellent film about Nachtway and photographic journalism in general.It also shows how difficult it is to work under great stress and murky ethical conditions. This film reminds us that there is a tricky line between being involved and 'being involved'. I loved the way the director sometimes takes the point of view of Nachtways camera. It turns the audience into voyeurs with the same moral and ethical questions now bestowed upon us. Nachtway dedicated his life to his work and we see glimpses of both compassion and emotional detachment in his work. I think this film most of all shows the price we pay for the news.
