Join the gang at Lomography Toronto to watch the fantastic documentary “War Photographer” (August 25 5-8pm). The Documentary follows American photographer James Nachtwey. The film covers his motivation, his fears and his daily routine as a war photographer.
Swiss author, director and producer Christian Frei followed James Nachtwey for two years into the wars in Indonesia, Kosovo, Palestine… Christian Frei used special micro-cameras attached to James Nachtwey’s photo-camera.
We see a famous photographer looking for the decisive moment. We hear every breath of the photographer. For the first time in the history of movies about photographers, this technique allowed an authentic insight into the work of a concerned photo-journalist.
