For a look at the incredible power of photography, follow the links on my I, Shootist blog to photojournalist James Nachtwey's TED presentation and his website.

Agreed. Have you checked out his site? Mesmerizing, haunting, poetic, and tragic images. They too are hard to view but without seeing them, how do people become aware of these things and, hopefully, turn that awareness into change?

I'm glad the James Nachtweys and Ed Kashis exists, but as mentioned their work is not everyone to view. Lots of people realize that our world isn't "juicy girls and Soju" for everyone, but they don't like seeing it.

Again thanks for posting

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Nachtwey in 1994 when he was one of the civilian photographers that taught at the Dept. of Defense, Combat Camera Workshop alongside Eli Reed, Susan Biddel, Mary Lou Foy and several others. I was even more honored when that entire group selected the top 5 military photographers of the world (American Military Branches) and I was one of the one's selected.

At the time Nachtwey only had three magazine photographer of the year titles, think he's up to at least six or eight now. Great guy. Also saw him on ABC television during 9/11. A great guy, great photographer and living legend. Thanks for sharing the link, rg sends!
