Nachteway Doc

Normal codes of civilized behavior are suspended during times of war, is just one of the truths James Nachteway said.  His passion to protect and bring aid to the injustice is admirable and inspiring.  I feel that the old adage is true, it only takes one voice to make a difference, and an image is worth a thousand words.  It is very easy to not act, it is a dangerous and hard road to take action and do it for the right reasons.  I believe his 20 years of work have not been in vane and change is in the future.

I feel angry that society as a collective are deemed too shallow by editors to care enough about the suffering of others and more about entertainment and gossip.  I believe that if more pieces like Nachteway’s were presented to society through the newsrooms, change would be less of an uphill battle.  The news stations like Fox 40 and ABC run on a nightly basis the tragedies in the local and surrounding areas, to run world news with such content would not be a huge jump for society.

Nachteway indicated that he believes everyone truly wants relief for those in need and it is that belief that keeps him going back to document and give a voice to the voiceless.  The connection he makes with his subjects and the respect he provides them is all the difference in how he captures images and why he gets specific images that others are not getting.  His passion and how he is emotionally affected is reflected in his images and is part of what makes his images so powerful.  Because he chooses to be a voice for the voiceless he reminds me of a disciple.  He spends time with the sick, poor, homeless, sinners and prays for them as he works to make change for the better though his images.  James Nachteway is a peace fighter, with a shutter for a weapon and his demeanor as his shield.
