Rwanda, 1994 - Survivor of Hutu death camp. James Nachtwey
"I have been a witness, and these pictures are
my testimony. The events I have recorded should
not be forgotten and must not be repeated."
A moving and profound statement that is an appropriate introduction to James' incredible portfolio entitled "Witness".
James is a true storyteller. His images are evocative, sometimes disturbing, but incredibly telling. They move you as you look through and reach out to touch your humanity, sometimes crying out to you of the inhumanity.
While these are stories that MUST be told, I can only imagine James' story behind the making of each image. I'm sure many of these were photos were taken at great personal risk to himself, and James obviously knows the meaning of the word dedication.
Quite a few other words come to mind when I look through James' photos... genuine, impact, horror, despair, grace... to name a few.
