Ok, here is your mistake...you are comparing. Being analytical/critical of someone's work is not about comparing it to others. Nachtwey's work is great in a much different way. If you want to be hit over the head with a sledgehammer with overpowering images of poverty, death, horrors, narrative photojournalism of some kind, then great, he's your man. I don't find his images universally appealing and that is likely the reason why he's not Bresson. You are seeing things from a purely subjective standpoint while claiming that Bresson's work stands simply by virtue of celebrity status, which is 100% wrong on all counts. Anyway..enough time wasted here..
