James Nachtwey is, quite simply, the greatest photojournalist working today. His life is series of descents into extreme consequence, his genius his ability to dignify suffering to such a degree that it becomes universally impossible to ignore. Here's a man who feels he could not stop doing what he does, even after 20 years of horror, on the basis of being 'needed.' Throughout all this he is dignified, softly spoken and humble, a vital force in a dwindling profession overshadowed by celebrity culture. Nachtwey's other books, 'Deeds of War,' and his latest tome, 'Inferno,' will stun even the most ignorant and insensitive into silence. The man deserves as much support as we can offer him.
