Incredible Documentary Photography by James Nachtwey

James Nachtwey has been a documentary photographer since 1981, when he went on his first foreign assignment to cover the IRA hunger strike in Ireland. Since then, he has worked in Afghanistan, South Africa, Rwanda, and Bosnia, among many others. The severe cost of many of the wars and social issues he has covered is clearly reflected in his incredible– and shocking– images.

About theshotinthedark

I'm Robert Bodor, and my passion is landscape and nature photography. I intend to pursue a career in medicine, and as you can see, I'll gladly talk too much about anything photography-related. If you have the time, I would be immensely grateful if you would check out or offer some blunt, honest critique on some of my images at bodorphotography.photoshelter.com or my new blog at anothershotinthedark.wordpress.com
