THE ULTIMATE SOURCE FOR CREATIVE TALENT

James Nachtwey Exhibition

Event dates: May 06, 2022 - Aug 14, 2022

Description: James Nachtwey is one of the world’s most respected photojournalists and is considered the defining visual war reporter of his time. An extraordinary observer and an acute witness, Nachtwey has devoted his career to documenting wars, conflicts, and critical social issues, and is currently in Ukraine documenting the atrocities of war in real-time. He has been awarded the Overseas Press Club’s Robert Capa, Gold Medal, five times, the World Press Photo Award twice, and been recognized with numerous other awards for his exceptional coverage of the events that shape our world.

Each photograph in this exhibition is a fragment of memory, captured within the continuum of the history Nachtwey experienced. Each image was intended to reach a mass audience at the time the events were taking place, as a way of raising public consciousness; one element among many in the process of change.

Now, as that same continuum moves relentlessly forward, and the events themselves recede in time, the artist’s hope is that these pictures will stand as a remembrance of the people in them, of the conditions they endured, and of how those conditions came to be.
