8. Afghanistan

This beautiful yet, apocalyptic image is telling us the story of a war: The civil war in Afghanistan turned Kabul into ruins. On this background, the white image of this covered lady seems a ghost rather than a human being.

9. East Germany




This is a picture that Nachtwey took back in 1990, in East Germany. Surprisingly or not, the description bellow the picture, on the photographer’s site states that this image which seems to be coming from hell, is actually describing pollution at a coke factory. Yes, Coca Cola.

10. New York




It is sad that even in a place like New York, war photojournalist James Nachtwey found an important subject: The Ground Zero of the 9/11 attacks, probably one of the most ravaging images he was ever witness to, continues to make an impact on the world, even after 10 years.
