“Every minute I was there, I wanted to flee.
I did not want to see this.
Would I cut and run, or would I deal with
the responsibility of being there with a camera”
(James Nachtwey)

areas, surrounded by suffering, death,
violence and chaos, photographer
James Nachtwey searches for the picture
he thinks he can publish.
A film about a committed, shy man, who
is considered one of the bravest and
most important war photographers of our
time – but hardly fits the cliché of the
hard-boiled war veteran.
