This year, the International Center for Journalists was pleased to present a once-in-a-lifetime collection of 17 iconic photographs assembled from the work of the foremost photojournalists of their generation.
The collection showcased transformative events by photographers who shaped the golden age of photojournalism, often risking their lives to give a voice to the voiceless and make important issues visible. Among them is James Nachtwey, the world's foremost conflict photographer and winner of ICFJ's inaugural Award for Excellence in Visual Journalism.
We are grateful to the photographers and their heirs who have donated these powerful images, to PICTO Lab for printing, matting and framing, and to the Findlay Galleries in New York for hosting a preview of the collection.
Sponsoring the ICFJ Tribute to Journalists 2023 is a powerful way to engage with our global network and
demonstrate that you stand with intrepid journalists.
