Children in Prisons by Nana Buxani

Being born in a conflict region in Mindanao, Nana Buxani devoted her life as a photographer to documenting the large issues on child labor, poor communities, children in detention, homeless people, war torn regions and the indigenous people.

This series Children in Prisons show young children that are detained. Some are innocent and some don’t even realize what they are doing. Most of these boys are forced to do unlawful acts because of poverty. One of the imprisoned boy relates, “I only steal from rich people, I don’t steal from people who are poor, they are just like me.”

A Witness Through Lenses by James Nachtwey

“I have been a witness, and these pictures are my testimony. The events I have recorded should not be forgotten and must not be repeated.”  These are the words of the photographer James Nachtwey, a witness through lenses. From the time when he was assigned to cover the civil strife in Northern Ireland in 1981 as a freelance photographer, he devoted himself to documenting wars and conflicts all over the world.

His photography project shows the various troubling issues around the world: war zones, prisoners, AIDS, abandoned children, etc. in full gray scale. He wants to show the world that there are enough problems around us, many are suffering the consequences including the innocent children and it is already enough and that it should be stopped.

Nachtwey has been a contract photographer with Time magazine since 1984 and his work has been pulished in National Geographic, Stern, Paris Match and New York Times Magazine to name a few. Because of his Humanistic Photography, he has been a recipient of the Common Wealth Award, Martin Luther King Award, Dr. Jean Mayer Global Citizenship Award, Henry Luce Award, Robert Capa Gold Medal (five times) and a lot more.
