A compelling insight into contemporary war photography through the eyes of James Nachtwey, considered by many as one of the greatest modern war photographers.
Nachtwey’s unsettling images of Indonesia, Palestine and Kosovo have been seen in newspapers throughout Europe, and Christian Frei’s film provides a topical, disquieting observation on the current state of war photography, the mass media, journalism, and the politics of the West.
