An orphan in an institution for "incurables" by James Nachtwey... Talk about capturing moments and the souls.... Nachtwey's works screams to viewers... makes you feel as if your there in that moment in the that injustice.....Inspirational
James Nachtwey is a world renowned war photographer. He has captured thousands of the worlds most tragic moments and events and though his photos are sad and heart wrenching, they have an everlasting effect that is hard to erase once exposed to them and this is important when it comes to what it means to be a photojournalist. His work is inspiring to me because it brings awareness to where it is needed most and this is what I plan to do in my journalism career.
