Swimming with the Razorfishes

Friday, August 13, 2004

Reading through this article reminded me about the great photos James Natchwey has on his site. Particularly this one, and this one. [warning: Natchwey covers war, famine, and disease; many of these photos are disturbing]

Natchwey is a living legend of photojournalism, consistently producing stunning, unforgettable photos. Looking through his site this morning, it occurred to me that his photos affect me in the same way as do Eugene Smith's work. Bold, direct messages that reveal more and more the longer I look at them. Seeing Smith's photos online don't do then justice. His prints are breathtaking.
