James Nachtwey Photography
I saw but a few of these and couldnt view the resst Im sorry. I cannot take seening these as much as I think we need to be aware I cant face it. Congratulation to the person who took these they are sertainly getting the message out.
Incredible, but also glad I wasn't the one there to witness all this misery.
update: i thumbed this site up 2 days ago, returned today and the homepage is giving a 404 as if it's inactive. hope it is just a temporary error.
Incredibly graphic images, I guess sometimes is the only way to create some awareness.
Some images are simply too emotion laden to not make me wonder why we can't simply all jsut get along and look after each other. Beautiful photos.
sometimes I wonder the point of my life! looking at these images made me feel sad...angry..guilty... Then I read a comment and that made me think that no matter what we see we will never understand the truth or meaning to anything. Why are those people dying of hunger while so much food goes to waste? I dont know...
One of the most amazing photographers I've come across. The documentary about him "War Photographer" is incredible.
I think the famine pictures really were difficult to see..especially the first one. I hope someone brought him food and he's still alive.
Witness of our ruins!
I wish I could share the excitement with the others! I admire these photos too! But the truth is they are potentially very dangerous and harmful! Not only they bring the political context, which ok, you might say is inevitable, but some of them send very wrong and false messages!
Here, I'll speak about "Kosovo" gallery, which partially stands for "Bosnia" gallery too. Having in mind that I come from Serbia, where I leave as well, I had a chance to experience the terror that took a place in my country. There are just couple of photos picturing these wars. The only thing that is clear here is the following: Serbs are pure evil, people made to destroy and kill!
First, there's a photo "Kosovo, 1999 - Ruins of Djacovica, destroyed by Serbs."!!! Just to make some things clear: we are talking about the war that was led against Serbian people by NATO! There's no way you could learn this from the photos! Serbia (including Kosovo as its part at the time, now still some would insist) has been bombing for almost 3 months, every single day! The most of the targets were civilian! So, the ruins that you can see here, were made by the NATO bombs (Djakovica has been bombed couple of times)!! Serbs (and Albanians too) were the victims, not the aggressors!
All if not, why would Serbs ruin their own property for God's sake?!
The next one, named "Kosovo, 1999 - Imprint of a man killed by Serbs." Of course, no one can really say that it wasn't an imprint of a man killed by Serbs, but it's highly more likely that it is a Serbian (or Albanian) civilian killed by a NATO bomb!
If you're interested in such a subjects, please don't believe everything the media say, be open to some other versions of a story, not only American! This is an American version! If you want to find out more about Kosovo issue watch the Czech movie "Stolen Kosovo":

It really makes me sad how art can be used in such a malicious purposes. This "Mr James Nachtwey" example is just one of a kind!
People who think these photos only spread negativity need to take a good look at the world. You can feel a little bit of pity and turn your head in the other direction, but that doesn't make it go away.
Really strong and emotional photos.
