    The courage of any war photographer is highly admirable; more so when their images are as powerful as James Nachtwey’s. I find some of his work most heart-wrenching especially the one of man in skin and bones crawling on the ground. How can we as a human race let this happen beats the heck out of me. I hope the good man continues to tell the story and open our eyes more…

    Yes, so many of Nachtwey’s images are just riveting.

    wow, what an impressive presentation by someone who was out of his natural element. I can only borrow Chaun’s words – heart wrenching to describe the impact of all these images of pain, suffering and atrocity. Life is so unfair to so many…

    It’s kind of neat to see someone so prominent say he’s tried al his life to be invisible. I guess it goes with the territory and I truly relate. Yes, life is far from fair. Let’s hope we selected our paths and the most horrific experiences are somehow the most rewarding in the big cosmic end.
