Last year, James Nachtwey, after winning the TED prize, made a cryptic wish:
I’m working on a story that the world needs to know about. I wish for you to help me break it in a way that provides spectacular proof of the power of news photography in the digital age.
Now, he and his TED collaborators are set to reveal his photo story on October 3rd. I am sure Nachtwey's story will be as spectacular as he hopes. He's a role model for the kind of documentarian I wish I could be, and I'm excited to see what he has uncovered.
Spread the word, and check out Time magazine on Friday, as well.
