"James Nachtwey: Testimony"
2001-04-28 until 2001-05-13
Delaware Art Museum
Wilmington, DE, USA United States of America

The Delaware Art Museum will present James Nachtwey: Testimony, an exhibition of 10 large-scale photographs by the internationally renowned photographer James Nachtwey. The exhibition coincides with the presentation of the Common Wealth Award for Distinguished Service in Mass Communications to James Nachtwey by PNC Bank, Delaware, on April 28, 2001.

Nachtwey (b. 1948) is one of the world's most widely published and highly respected photojournalists. He has been a courageous witness to history, working continuously for the last two decades in areas of unrest around the world. Nachtwey's photographic essays tell a story of human resilience, dignity and triumph in the face of the most horrendous circumstances. Nachtwey, a member of Magnum Photos, has photographed war, famine and racial conflict in the Middle East, India, Somalia, the Sudan, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Romania, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo and Indonesia. He perceives his work to be a visual archive of crimes against humanity, believing the images he photographs will enter our collective memory and consciousness. Nachtwey’s graphic, and at times shocking, images of death and destruction both highlight the evils of modern conflict and remind us of our responsibility as part of the international community to effect change and better the world.

Nachtwey, whose photographs appear regularly in Time Magazine and other publications, has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including an unprecedented five Robert Capa Gold medals from the Overseas Press, three International Center of Photography Infinity Awards for Photojournalism and a W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography.
