Famed Photojournalist James Nachtwey's Latest Work.

Posted by Rod Mar

This is a departure from sports photography, but I know you won't mind.

For those of you who might not know the name, James Nachtwey is known as one of the greatest (if not the greatest) war photographer alive.

More than covering war, he also uses his cameras to document critical social issues as well.

In 2007, Nachtwey won the TED Prize, an initiative of the TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) Conference, which grants three extraordinary individuals one wish to change the world. Winners are given one hundred thousand dollars in seed money, and individuals within the TED community and the world at large participate in making the wish come true.

Nachtwey wished for help in breaking a news story in a way that demonstrates the power of news photography in the digital age.

His project was published online today, and it is a powerful piece of documentary photography about a form of tuberculosis called XDR-TB (extremely drug-resistant tuberculosis).
