Photo of the Week: Searing images of a world at war
"Chechnya, 1995-1996"

World-renowned photojournalist James Nachtwey presented a slide show of his work to a large campus audience May 2 as part of the Canon Lecture Series, presented by the Graduate School of Journalism.

"I used to call myself a war photographer," Nachtwey has said. "Now I consider myself an antiwar photographer." He spent the '90s as a witness to modern warfare and its consequences around the globe.

Of "Inferno," his new book from Phaidon Press, Time magazine wrote: "...each shot is a primordial scene in which you recognize what the late 20th century had in common with, say, the darkest moments of the sixth."
