DESCRIPTION
Directed in close collaboration with James Nachtwey and Roberto Koch, this exhibition is the largest retrospective ever dedicated to the work of the photographer. The exhibition offers a remarkable reflection on the theme of war, the scope of which is necessarily collective. Seventeen different sections create the exhibition, forming a set of nearly two hundred photographs. It brings together images from one of the most prolific photojournalists of recent decades.

James Nachtwey's career is marked by numerous awards and awards in various fields, is internationally recognized as the heir of Robert Capa. His moral strength and his social and civil commitments led him to devote his entire life to documentary photography. He never stops photographing pain, injustice, violence and death. But so that human suffering and loneliness are never forgotten, he creates images of dizzying beauty, impeccably framed and illuminated, and with almost cinematographic effects. The extraordinary beauty and infinite tenderness that emanate from it are all means of struggle and resistance.

James Nachtwey has been portraying the war for 40 years, bluntly portraying the fate of the people who make it a terrible experience. His images reveal a humanity mutilated by violence, devastated by disease and hunger, a humanity that, by nature, seems to be misled.

"I was a witness. These images are my testimony."
James Nachtwey
