Nachtwey Wins Heinz Award.

Famed war photographer James Nachtwey, who has documented war, genocide and famine around the world for more than twenty years has netted $250,000 in the Heinz awards reports Bloomberg.

The first photographer to receive the prize which is normally given to artists, Nachtwey did not even know he was under consideration.

`It came out of the blue,’ he said said . `I am not in the art world. I consider myself a documentary photographer. To be recognized for an arts award is surprising.’’

The Heinz Award, one of the largest of its kind, was established by Teresa Heinz Kerry in 1993 to honor her late husband, U.S. Senator John Heinz.

A self-taught photographer, Nachtwey has photographed orphans in Romania, heroin addicts in Pakistan, famine victims in Sudan and wounded and dying soldiers in Kosovo and Nicaragua.
