Summary: Humanitarian and photojournalist James Nachtwey is above all a witness on the side of the victims. In the disturbing worlds of conflict, rivalry and cruelty he sets out to communicate horrors that we often choose to ignore, addressing the victims' suffering and powerlessness with a clear and unflinching gaze. Working with unrivalled commitment, travelling from one disaster to the next on a harrowing schedule, Nachtwey has, over the last twenty years, confronted war, famine and the gravest geopolitical issues of our time. With a brutally compassionate stance, he witnesses the tragedies of today that frighteningly could be buried and forgotten. His pictures are inspired by an overwhelming belief in the human possibility of change, despite evidence to the contrary.The work of a perfectionist, Inferno is Nachtwey's first major monograph. Featuring photographs from the last ten years, it guides us through Somalia's famine to genocide in Rwanda, from Romania's abandoned orphans and 'irrecoverables' to the lives of India's 'untouchables', from war in Bosnia to conflict in Chechnya, disclosing some of today's gravest examples of man's inhumanity to his fellow man. A master in his field, Nachtwey is the only four-time winner of the Robert Capa Medal for photography. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0714838152
