James Nachtwey. Memoria

On show at Palazzo Reale in Milan, untill the March 4th 2018, James Nachtwey. Memoria the first showing of an international tour that will take the exhibition to the most important museums worldwide. It is an original production and the greatest retrospective ever made of his work and it is promoted and produced by the Municipality of Milan – Culture, Palazzo Reale, Civita, Contrasto and GAmm Giunti.

Curated by Roberto Koch and James Nachtwey himself, the exhibition offers a remarkable individual and collective reflection on the theme of war. Arranged in seventeen different sections, the two hundred photos on display offer visitors a wide selection of James Nachtwey’s most significant reportages: from El Salvador to Gaza, from Indonesia to Japan, Romania, Somalia, Sudan, Rwanda, Iraq, Afghanistan, Nepal, the United States (including the extraordinary testimony of the 9/11 terror attack) and many other countries. It ends with a very topical reportage on immigration in Europe: Memoria collects the shots with which Nachtwey tells us about the cruelty of war, the violence of terror, and the empty look of despair.

James Nachtwey (Syracuse, NY, 1948) has devoted his whole life to documentary photography on the most extreme conditions in human life, often very close to becoming hell on earth. He is the epic witness to the cruelty of war, as testified by the photos on exhibit at Palazzo Reale. Memoria is an exhibition featuring the photos of the most important photo-reporter of the last few decades, where through the alternating light and darkness an endless dance is performed. Nachtwey is an extraordinary observer of our contemporary world, as well as its most acute witness.

«I have been a witness – tells the American photographer – I have witnessed people who have had everything taken from them – their homes, their families, their arms and legs, their sanity. And yet, each one still possessed dignity, the irreducible element of being human. These pictures are my testimony».
