Rwanda. 1994 - A Hutu man at a Red Cross hospital, his face mutilated by the Hutu 'Interahamwe' militia, who suspected him of sympathizing with the Tutsi rebels. (James Nachtwey) This famous picture has been reproduced many, many times. I think this is one of the best crops and captions I've seen.
"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-

James Nachtwey is a world renowned war photographer. He has captured thousands of the worlds most tragic moments and events and though his photos are sad and heart wrenching, they have an everlasting effect that is hard to erase once exposed to them and this is important when it comes to what it means to be a photojournalist. His work is inspiring to me because it brings awareness to where it is needed most and this is what I plan to do in my journalism career.
Huge respect for James Nachtwey. His pictures showcase a world that you will not see on tv, radio, press and traditional internet.
James Nachtwey, Kabul, Afganistan, 1996. Some (not this one) of the most grotesque photos I've ever seen but also the most powerful.
