James Nachtwey’s one wish

James Nachtwey, one of the world’s greatest photojournalists and winner of the 2007 TEDPrize, received “one wish to change the world”.

I’m working on a story that the world needs to know about. I wish for you to help me break it, in a way that provides spectacular proof of the power of news photography in the digital age.

Head on over to Nachtwey’s TEDPrize page and watch his moving presentation, it is worth every second of the 23.41 minutes out of your busy day. If you are too busy to even click on that link just watch it right below. Now you have no excuses…


I plan on attending the opening of James Nachtwey’s global photography exhibition at the National Theatre of London tomorrow night, his photography will be avaliable to see on all 7 continents starting on October 3rd 2008.
