These powerful photographs from Photojournalist James Nachtwey are truly disturbing. I, for one, thought that this disease was mostly beaten.
I was obviously wrong…..
I thought you should see these photographs. They’re both powerful and moving. They highlight the awful disease XDR -TB, a new and deadly form of tuberculosis that is threatening to become a global pandemic.
(As background, the photographs were taken by leading photojournalist James Nachtwey and were ‘unveiled’ on October 3rd, 2008 in more than 50 cities on seven continents as a deliberate attempt to highlight this new danger faced by the world.)
Thank you for taking the time to think about this.
