Viewing Room #8 - Memoria by James Nachtwey
Nachtwey's images focus on the impact of injustice and violence, yet they evoke a sense of compassion and sympathy. Within large-scale historical events of global impact, he documents intimate moments of humanity. His photographs can appear to have a formal completeness, but they are spontaneous, intuitive and often composed in a fraction of a second.
The photographs in the exhibition are arranged in narrative sequences that include many of Nachtwey's most prominent bodies of work.
