Being Witness: TED on James Nachtwey
“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.”
Only time for a quick post, this from TED:
This is an important story that has been documented over the last two years by renowned photojournalist James Nachtwey. In 2007, Nachtwey won the TED Prize, an initiative of the TED Conference, which grants three extraordinary individuals one wish to change the world. Winners are given one hundred thousand dollars in seed money, and individuals within the TED community and the world at large participate in making the wish come true.
Nachtwey wished for help in breaking a news story in a way that demonstrates the power of news photography in the digital age. On October 3, Nachtwey’s work will be simultaneously revealed online, disseminated through numerous media channels, and projected on monuments and public buildings throughout the world.
