A selection of must reads about Dartmouth alumni making news around the world.
James Nachtwey ’70

Antiwar Photography

The New Yorker has published a slew of Nachtwey’s photos showing recent scenes of despair and destruction in Ukraine. “Nachtwey calls himself an ‘antiwar photographer’,” notes New Yorker editor David Remnick, who also writes:

“James Nachtwey, now seventy-four, is among those keeping their eyes trained on the realities. Influenced by the photography that emerged from the civil-rights movement and Vietnam, he began his career at the Boston bureau of Time and then took a job at the Albuquerque Journal. When he read about the hunger strike in Northern Ireland, in 1981, he headed for Belfast. Four decades of covering conflict ensued, bringing him to El Salvador, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Balkans, Rwanda, Chechnya, and many other places. He has been injured in the field, lost colleagues and friends; his hair was once parted by a bullet. His refusal to avert his gaze from the true costs of conflict belongs to a larger mission: to keep the world from doing so.”
