Due to the crazy schedule I am merging Tuesday and Wednesday together. But I am also doing this because there is a photographer who appeared at TED that truly inspired me.
James Nachtway is famous for his photojournalism of third world countries. He has risked his life by documenting war, disease, poverty...life and death. His path in life is far different from mine, and yet I can't help but feel a connection as there are some things that I would like imitate. I admire him for his skill and respect him for his actions of capturing critical social issues.
"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." - James Nachtwey
Warning the link takes you to quick presentation by James, followed by a video of his still photography as he documented the XDR-TB, a drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis that's touching off a global medical crisis. Some photos may be graphic.
