TEDprize - james nachtwey

after watching this TED video by james nachtwey, i'm intrigued. he has been a war photographer for the last several decades - a witness to events that "should not be forgotten and must not be repeated." he shares a sobering series of photos and stories during his 2007 TED prize talk:

as the winner of the 2007 TED Prize, he was awarded $100,000 and one 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."

tomorrow, october 3rd, 2008, the story breaks... and i'm interested in the experience.
