James Nachtwey raises awareness about TB through his photographs

Photojournalist James Natchwey is on a mission to spread the word about the threat of potential worldwide Tuberculosis pandemic. XDR-TB is a resistant mutant strain that is affecting millions throughout the world and threatens many more people, but it is preventable. This video consists of 37 black-and-white photos by Nachtwey and a call to action.

I've spoken before about the power of photography, but in this case, what could be more powerful than raising awareness that could lead to saving lives?
