The Hood Museum of Art presents this exhibition of approximately twenty photographs by world-renowned photojournalist James Nachtwey, who will be on campus as a Montgomery Fellow during the spring term in conjunction with the thirteenth annual Humanities Institute, sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The institute, entitled The Near in Blood, the Nearer Bloody: Interethnic Civil War / Cultural Genocide / Cultural Resistance, will take place from March 25 through May 31 at Dartmouth College. Nachtwey, a Dartmouth graduate, is a member of the institute. His photographs document the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide, famine in the Sudan, and the recent conflict in the Balkans, Chechnya, and Afghanistan.

The exhibition is an excerpted version of James Nachtwey: Testimony, organized by the International Center for Photography, New York, with support from Canon USA and Time, Inc. Its presentation at the Hood is made possible by the Harrington Gallery Fund.
