Photographer James Nachtwey's stunning retrospective comes to Asia

'Memoria' depicts lifetime of bearing witness to wars, disasters and the human condition

Self-taught, fearless and ferociously determined, James Nachtwey has become one of the world's most acclaimed documentary war photographers -- or what he calls "anti-war photographers." For more than four decades, he has roamed the most dangerous parts of the globe, documenting the destructive forces of humanity: war, conflict, genocide.

His stark, haunting images have graced the covers of most leading international news journals such as Time, Life and National Geographic, and won numerous accolades. Although a part-time resident of Bangkok for nearly two decades, he has maintained a low public profile in Asia. But his work now comes under Thailand's spotlight in "Memoria," a sweeping retrospective of his storied career on display at the Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre (Sept. 5-Nov. 26).
