Quote of the Day

waterfall2

 

I want my work to become part

of our visual history, to enter

our collective memory and our

collective conscience. I hope it

will serve to remind us that

history’s deepest tragedies

concern not the great

protagonists who set events

in motion but the countless

ordinary people who are caught

 

up in those events and torn apart by their remorseless fury. 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

(1948-     )

American Journalist and War Photographer
