James Nachtwey

Today in Archival Quality: Alumnus James Nachtwey returned to Dartmouth College in 1994 to show and talk about his work as a photographer covering conflicts across the world. Nachtwey had a news conference at the Hood Museum of Art, which I covered for the Valley News. His work is the true definition of documentary photography — being in the right place at the right time. Profiled a few years later in the documentary film War Photographer, Nachtwey returns to the college this year as a Roth Distinguished Visiting Scholar.

Archival Quality is a series looking at Geoff Hansen’s favorite photos from over 30 years as a photographer.
